Notice: The dates for this event are not yet confirmed. This page will be updated once the official date(s) are announced by the event organizers. Please check the official event site for the latest info.

Hikarigaoka park is a former airfield and military housing complex. A sprawling picturesque park in the residential area of Nerima ward, it is renowned for its seasonal scenery, particularly, its gingko tree avenue for their golden yellow leaves every November.

Also, annually in November they have the JA Tokyo Green Leaves Agriculture Festival. More than just a market, they have live performances with shows and entertainment. There is a also huge "treasure ship" display made from fruit and vegetables. The festival is held in the "Keyaki Hiroba" Open Space from 10 am to 4 pm. The 2019 dates are Saturday November 16th and Sunday November 17th.

Getting there

By public transport

The park is located in Tokyo, but right on the border of Wako City in Saitama. You can use the Tobu Tojo Line's Narimasu station, Oedo Line's Hikarigaoka Station or Fukutoshin line's Chikatetsu Narimasu station to get to the park. Each station is about a 15 minute walk away from the park.

By car

Close to the Nerima exit of the Kanetsu expressway, there is pay parking beside the park's gymnasium. It costs 2,200 yen for the day.

I've been in Japan for 18 years and yet everyday is still an adventure. For the last 11 years I have been living in and blogging about Saitama Prefecture (on my personal blog, occasionally appearing on TV to promote the attractions of my adopted home in rural Saitama.  Despite its central location, just North of Tokyo, Saitama is still quite unknown to the international tourist, but frequented by domestic travelers. It is a great place to experience some off-the-international-tourist-trail locations and meet with locals and national tourists. And of course Saitama is home to venues for both the Rugby World Cup and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. I hope to introduce a taste of what there is to do and see in my articles on Japan Travel and help you with your Saitama travel planning.

One of my favourite places for gingko. We couldn't make it this weekend for the festival, but we were there last week. They were already glistening gold and stunning.

They really are and amazingly still not that well known outside the area. But very popular with locals as you can imagine.
