Setagaya Plum Festival
Enjoy traditional attractions, refreshments and souvenirs after you stroll through the beautiful plum blossoms. Before sakura season hits in full force it’s time for the plum blossom to bloom and bring in the crowds for the first obligatory flower viewing of the year. Hanegi Park in Setagaya-ku is one of the most famous spots for plum viewing inside the city and its annual Plum Festival makes the most of the beautiful red, pink and white flowers and their sweet alluring scent. Aside from over 600 flowering trees, the festival includes a variety of events including tea ceremonies, haiku workshops, mochi-making classes and taiko drumming performances.
