Note: The 2023 installment of this event has already taken place.
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 ceremony using tables and chairs, 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).
Please check the official event website for the latest updates on opening dates and times, prices, and other information.
