June events in Saitama Prefecture

Below you will find a round up of the events on this June in Saitama Prefecture. Moreover, I add new events all the time, so please do pop back every now and then. Each event is linked to a page with further information. However, as events by their very nature are tentative, please do always check with the official websites (linked within each post) for any last minute changes and the most up to date information.

The Internet is changing! Thousands (possibly millions) of small publishers and websites around the world are feeling the pinch from all the recent changes to search engines. Many have already given up and retired their websites. If you want to support this website and keep it afloat, please share this, or any post, with friends and / or colleagues who live and / or work or (might/) travel to Saitama Prefecture. Thank you.

>>You can find May’s round up here.
>>A guide to rainy season here.

Weekend events in June

Hereafter, events on Friday, Saturdays and Sundays. Typically, I only include weekday events if they are public holidays, with the occasional exception. But anything in the daily list is available on weekdays, if the venue is open. Often attractions are closed one day a week, with Monday closures being the most common. Also, bear in mind, some of these events are dependent on the weather! The ⇗ symbol in front of a link indicates that the link is to an external, usually Japanese language, source.
