The annual Omiya Bonsai Matsuri is held in the world famous Omiya Bonsai Village in Kita-ku, Saitama. The village is beautiful any time of the year, but it is especially worth visiting during the festival when the six gardens of the village put on special exhibitions of their most prized bonsai, and bonsai from amateurs and other members of the local community are also put up for show. Bonsai and bonsai gardening equipment are available for purchase during the festival.
Omiyakoen Station is the closest station to the village, but Toro Station to the north is only a 10-minute walk away and has better access from Shibuya/Shinjuku (it’s a stop on the Shonan-Shinjuku Line).
