Hanazono Furusato Festival

Just a mini post today, to share information about the Hanazono Furusato Summer Festival. This post was originally written for the 2022 festival, but the festival is on the same date every year. Furusato means hometown. Hanazono is an area in Fukaya City, best known for its interchange and its roadside station!

Hanazono Furusato Summer Festival

Disclaimer: I have never been to the Hanazono Furusato Summer Festival personally. But from the official flyer for the event, it looks to be a good one for families / with kids. It also looks like it has a more local feel to it than the larger Fukaya festivals, such as their Tanabata festival in July or the Fukaya summer Festival.

At the 2023 festival they will have:

  • A giant water play area (a regular fixture at this annual festival)
  • A beer garden
  • Food trucks
  • Kids Dance
  • Kids market
  • Local produce bazaar

In 2023 the festival is starting at the earlier time of 11 pm (in 2022 it didn’t start until 4 pm) and will be on until 8 pm, weather permitting. Please note, the festival will most likely be cancelled if it is raining.
