On weekends and public holidays during the Setagaya Plum Blossom Festival, you can enjoy fun cultural events such as koto (Japanese stringed instrument) performances, haiku classes, tea ceremonies, and mochi (rice cake) pounding. There are refreshment booths, as well as stalls dedicated to horticulture and potted plants. The festival is a great opportunity to try a variety of traditional plum-flavored treats, including yokan jelly and daifuku (stuffed rice cake).
