Shinshiro-City Kaore's Plum Blossoms Festival
Date : 02/23/2023 - 03/21/2023
Okumikawa's Paradise on Earth
Every year the plum groves in the Kaore district of Shinshiro-City reach full bloom from early to mid-March.
Eleven farming families grow around 1,500 plums of eight different varieties, including Nanko. The scattered farmhouses are surrounded by plum trees, and the sight of the blossoms in full bloom on the slopes of the mountains is truly like a modern-day paradise. In March, a farmers’ market selling agricultural products is set up and the Plum Blossoms Festival is held.
