In Chichibu city, the western part of Saitama prefecure, shibazakura, a moss phlox flower festival is being held until May 5th. I went there and saw a beautiful flower carpet. Chichibu city is also famous for the Night Festival which is held on Dec. 3, characterized by large elaborate festival floats and fireworks displays and registered as Intangible World Heritage by UNESCO. Chichibu Festival is a traditional event like an Electrical Parade. How spectacular it is!
