Tentative: Water Fight Festival and World Festa | SAITAMA

July 24 @ 10:00 - July 26 @ 20:00

saitama shintoshin water fight festival

The 19th annual Saitama Shintoshin Keyaki Hiroba Water Fight Festival and World Festa has not yet been released. It is normally held on the last Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the month. There is a very high likelihood that the event will not be scheduled this year due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Saitama Shintoshin has not yet commented either way.

General information

The grounds and food booths will be open from 10 am to 8 pm (5 pm on the 31st). The water fights will take place between 11 am and 1 pm and again between 2 pm and 4 pm. There is a kiddies pool for children under three years old.

The water fight festival is based on the Thai festival of Songkran, where throwing water is believed to encourage a good harvest and good health.  There is no cover charge to participate in the water throwing festival. You can pay to try some cuisine from different parts of the world.

The event normally goes ahead in the case of light rain, but will be cancelled in the event of heavy rain or a typhoon.

This event was advertised in a family summer mook (magazine) in 2017, linked below. The link is to an external site, which is part of an affiliation program. (More information here). Any purchase you make through this link, the blog will make a very small percentage of the sale, which contributes to the costs of self hosting this website.

Water fight festival was first published on Saitama With Kids in 2017 and is updated annually.

Another water fight festival called the “Splash Festival” takes place in Tsurugashima annually.
