Each year, in spring, the Dewa Community in Koshigaya host a popular tulip festival for just one day during the bloom of the tulips. The tulips are open to the public for viewing before the festival date. In 2023, the garden will open from Monday March 20th. Historically, the festival was in early April, but in recent years it has been on the last week of March…
The famous tulips of Koshigaya are in Dewa Park. Dewa Park is a large recreational park with sports facilities. At Dewa Park, about 60,000 tulips are carefully raised by local residents and elementary and junior high school students in a large tulip garden. They even create picturesque displays from the tulips. Furthermore, there is even tulips in one of the ponds. They normally bloom from the end of March to early April. Beautiful cherry blossoms bloom in the park around the same time.
Dewa Community Tulip Festa 2023
The tulip festival at Dewa Park in Koshigaya has actually gone ahead the last two years despite the pandemic. However, it was on a smaller scale in 2021 and 2022. In 2023, it is currently scheduled for Sunday March 26th. Every year they give out free tulips at this festival and they will be doing it in 2023 too. They give them out in the afternoon as the festival is wrapping up.
In 2021 and 2022 you needed to secure a ticket to receive them. There is currently no information for that online, but if they do follow that system this year: they distribute the tickets from 9.45 am. In a ‘usual’ year, i.e. before the pandemic, they had performances, shows, and even a petting zoo. Currently, there is no mention of additional events on the day.

The park is located along the Musashino Line train tracks, but it is bang smack halfway between two train stations! Higashi Kawaguchi and Minami Koshigaya Stations are both about a 20 minute walk from the park! There is a parking lot at the park, but the area can get very congested. Where possible it is advised to come either by foot, bike or public transport.
