Hydrangea Festival

Hydrangea Festival Hydrangea Festival Hydrangea Festival

Tako’s Ajisai Matsuri (Hydrangea Festival) is held during Japan’s rainy season in June when the 10,000 hydrangea flowers growing along the banks of the Kuriyama River bloom in gorgeous blues, purples, pinks, and whites. The festival opens with a ritual rice offering in which townspeople, dressed up as lords, ladies, and samurai, take to the stage for this annual ceremony.

The celebrations include traditional folk performances, concerts, and river cruises on traditional sappa boats.

Experience this on the Narita Airport Transit & Stay Program by booking a free Volunteer Guided Tour.
