Venue: Kurihara & Zama When: Aug 10th - Aug 14th 2020 ,  10:00am - 5:00pm

Zama's city flower is the sunflower. In late July through August more than 550,000 flowers bloom and the city celebrates with a two-part festival.

During the festival, you can enjoy music and entertainment, eat yummy food and buy farm-fresh produce. Sample sunflower pasta, crackers and beverages. You can purchase an array of products, from Sunflower seeds to Sunflower beer, cider and shochu. This is fun for the whole family and a community event not to be missed.

The festival is held in 2 locations, including Kurihara (late July) and Zama (mid-August).

Hailing from Portland Oregon, I am a recent transplant to Zama, Japan here in Kanagawa. Having worked for a high school international exchange organization for close to 8 years, I'm inspired by all things intercultural and love to travel! When in a new country I am like a sponge, absorbing as much cultural nuisance and norm as possible.Though I leave room for spontaneity during an outing or trip, I utterly enjoy doing advanced research; reading reviews of hotels, restaurants and sites to visit. I'm involved with Japan Tourist because I'd like to share my observations and recommendations with locals and travelers alike.
