Venue : Wonderful Nature Village, Akiruno, Tokyo When : Jun 17th - Jul 10th 2022, 10:00am - 5:00pm

Wonderful Nature Village is located in Akiruno, in the western part of Tokyo. They've been hosting an annual hydrangea festival for over 45 years now, and the event showcases the beauty of around 15,000 flowers in an impressive 60 varieties. The main drawcard here is a hillside filled with several thousand Annabelle snowball hydrangeas, which are known for their fluffy white flower clusters.

Because of the hilly nature of the venue, visitors are recommended to wear comfortable footwear to the event.

Admission to the festival is priced at ¥850 for adults; those who are elementary school age and under receive free admission.

Getting there

The Wonderful Nature Village is located around 10 minutes by taxi from Akigawa Station, served by the JR Itsukaichi Line. Free shuttle bus services will operate from the station to the venue on weekdays only during the event – details about that service are on the official event site (in Japanese).

Alternatively, for those who opt to drive, on-site parking is available – it's charged at a rate of ¥700.
