Kodaira Lantern Festival
Kodaira’s lantern festival is held on the first Saturday of August every year. Locations along the Sayama Sakai Green Way and Tamagawa Josui canal stretches of the Green Road are decorated with nearly 4,000 handmade lanterns. A performance stage and food and beverage stalls will be at each venue along the green road. Come out to watch lanterns flicker in the night air while also enjoying performances from local talent.
Kodaira Green Road
The Kodaira Green Road is a gorgeous 21km long walking path with two main walking trails.
From Koganei Park, a location renowned for its beautiful cherry blossoms, starts the Sayama Sakai Green Way trail. This path is lined with hundreds of cherry blossom trees, making it an incredible sight in the spring.
The Tamagawa Josui canal trail also boasts cherry blossoms, specifically the yamazakura variety, which were planted along the canal back in the 1700’s! In the fall the canal lights up with gorgeous fall colors, making it a perfect spot for a crisp autumn stroll.
Hirakushi Denchu Art Museum
The Hirakushi Denchu Art Museum features some of Hirakushi Denchu’s most impressive and realistic wooden sculptures. His most renowned sculpture is his 2-meter tall masterpiece Kagami-jishi, which can be seen at the National Theatre of Japan. The residence where Denchu lived out the final years of his life, until he passed away at the age of 107, is also part of the museum. Late February is the perfect time to explore Denchu’s former residence as his beloved plum trees will be in full bloom.
Edo-Tokyo Open-Air Architectural Museum
This architectural museum is a collection of preserved and reconstructed buildings from the Edo-era to Showa-era, with the majority being built in the Meiji-era. Buildings from all over Tokyo have been relocated to this museum including a bathhouse, residential homes of famous figures, and teahouses. Slip back in time and experience what olden-day Tokyo was like
U-Pick Blueberry Farms
You don’t have to travel far from Tokyo’s city-center to enjoy picking delicious, locally-grown fruit! Kodaira was the first location in Japan to cultivate blueberries and is only 30 minutes from Shinjuku. Kodaira farmers have been passionately growing blueberries for generations. Blueberries in Kodaira are carefully cultivated to be incredibly sweet and delicious. A variety of blueberries are grown, making it possible to enjoy blueberries picking all summer long!
Other fruit can also be picked through the year such as pears and kiwifruits. Come experience the deliciousness of fresh, locally-grown Kodaira fruit!
