Kyokusui-no-en Festival

START: Mar 2, 2014 END: Mar 2, 2014

From the Heian Period, this elegant annual festival sees Waka poets in traditional kimono sit along the stream amongst 6,000 plum blossoms composing poems, as a cup of sake is set afloat. When the cup reaches them they finish the poem and drink. Secure your seat early!
