Zama Sunflower Festival 2024

550,000 sunflowers bloom in Zama

Venue: Kurihara & Zama When: Mid Aug 2024

Zama's city flower is the sunflower. In late July through August more than 550,000 flowers bloom and the city celebrates with a two-part festival.

During the festival, you can enjoy music and entertainment, eat yummy food and buy farm-fresh produce. Sample sunflower pasta, crackers and beverages. You can purchase an array of products, from Sunflower seeds to Sunflower beer, cider and shochu. This is fun for the whole family and a community event not to be missed.

The festival is held in 2 locations, including Kurihara (late July) and Zama (mid-August).

Hi, I was directed by one of my friends to your article and I am very much inspired to go here this weekend! I was contemplating to go to Nirasaki in Yamanashi but it would be too far and costly. Do you think the sunflowers are still beautiful for photography this weekend (tomorrow 11th Aug). Thanks a lot for those wonderful photos.

Thank you for your support!
