Wintersweet, light up, strawberries and a hina doll with a mask some of the February Events in Saitama Prefecture

The biggest and best February events in Saitama Prefecture. A round up of events on in Saitama Prefecture in February 2024. Please note, I add new events all the time, often multiple times a day, as I confirm them. So if you are reading this on the day it was published, please note dozens, even hundreds more, will be added in the coming days and weeks. A ⇗ symbol in front of an entry indicates a link to an external site, most often the official website. March events here.

Events by date

Please note, that all four icicle locations are now closed, earlier than initially scheduled. The last to close was Onouchi icicles which announced on Monday, the 19th, rather suddenly, that that would be the last day of there and the Hisatsuki icicles. The other two – Ashigakubo and Misotsuchi – closed on the 18th and 14th respectively. All quoted the unseasonably warm weather as the reason.

Events on today include all the events in the daily list, plus hopefully everything listed below. However, some of the weather forecasts are predicting rain, in which case several of these events maybe cancelled.
