Seinan Sakura Matsuri 2024

Seinan is the name of the area from Musashi Urawa Station to Besshonuma Park in Saitama City. Seinan 西南 means south west. The area of the cherry blossoms and the sakura matsuri is on a street that is called ‘Greenery and flower promenade’ 花と緑の散歩道. You can find dozens of post on social media of the promenade. The tunnel of sakura trees in the middle of a road in urban Saitama City is very photogenic.

Saitama City Seinan Sakura Matsuri 2024

Each year, the area hosts a ‘sakura matsuri’ cherry blossom festival. It is a local, family friendly festival. It is a highly populated area, so there is always a good crowd of people. However, due to the pandemic, the festival was not held between 2020 and 2022. But they did have the festival lanterns up in 2022 and they also lit up the trees at night. Last year should have been the first time the festival was on in four years, but due to heavy rain they had to cancel it. So this year will be the first time in FIVE years.

This year, they have confirmed they will have their one day festival with some of the standard features, including the beloved mini steam locomotive ride under the cherry blossoms.

Cherry Blossom Light Up

They usually put lanterns on the trees and light them up during the period that the cherry blossoms are in bloom.
