In summer the wading streams, fireflies and beetles draw families from afar. You can see the fireflies in July. There is normally a viewing event, but it may not be able to go ahead in 2023. If you are looking for somewhere to see Iris and Hydrangea together in Saitama prefecture, this is a great spot. The iris and hydrangea have become quite famous and attract photographers, Instagrammers and cosplayers.

Water play in 2024

The water play area / wading river is open in 2024. This wading river is actually open all year round. During the summer months you can use it between 9 am and 5 pm. However, every month it closes for 3 days in a row, Tuesday to Thursday, in the middle of the month for cleaning. In winter it is off limits after 3 pm. Other water play areas in Saitama Prefecture.

      GAHH! This went into spam too. I am going to ask Bluehost about it, because I can’t figure it out myself. Must be something dodgy about your name Andy. 🙂
