Hiwada Kinchakuda ( purse shape field)
I went to Hiwada Kinchida.
It is a meandering terrain surrounded by rivers.
It’s created over a long period of time by the meandering of the Koraigawa River, a clear stream that flows through Hidaka City.
The name “kinchada” comes from its resemblance to the shape of a kinchaku, a traditional Japanese purse.
On the flatland surrounded by the river, which is approximately 500 meters in diameter and covers an area of 22 hectares.
Manjushage ( spider lilies)
This area is covered with manjushage (red spider lilies), and the entire area is dyed in crimson, as if it were covered with a red carpet.
Many people visit here every year, attracted by its beauty.
What is wonderful is that the area is surrounded by a clear stream.
So the sound of the river’s current can be heard at all times, creating a very refreshing atmosphere.
Walking slowly along the circular river while taking pictures, you can enjoy many beautiful manjushage.
The Kinchida Manjushage Festival is held from September 17 to October 2 and is very crowded with many food stands.
It takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes from Tokyo to the station called Koma in Saitama Prefecture.
And from there it is about a 10-minute walk.
Manjushage is called higanbana (autumn equinox day flower ), and the best time to see it is around September 23, the day of the Higan (autumnal equinox day).
Why don’t you come and enjoy the Japanese autumn scenery?
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
