Enjoy the gorgeous contest between sakura cherry blossoms and rapeseed flowers undergoing along a cute river!
This event gives you the chance to enjoy the Kawazu sakura cherry trees and rapeseed flowers blooming along the Memedagawa River in Tahara City. The stores and streets in Fukue (which extend along the river) are decorated with hanging ornaments called "tsurushi bina" themed on the Hina Dolls Day, that children from local nursery schools make by hand, and there are lots of stalls and events to enjoy while walking along the river. Check out the stamp rally event, "mochi" rice cake pounding, "asari" clam soup shops, dumplings and the like, and welcome hospitality in the form of "amazake" sweet rice liquor being served to guests.
