Hiroshima Flower Festival

Free

Don’t let the name fool you, the Hiroshima Flower Festival is a lot more than a simple flower show. Across multiple venues through the city, there will be stage performances, a ‘yosakoi’ dance festival with 100 dance teams participating, a parade with flower floats, night time light ups at the Peace Park and (of course) a ‘flower queen’ contest.

The flower parade will take place along Heiwa Dori on the 3rd of February while the Yosakoi contest will take place over the same route on May 5th.
