📍 Sakura Cosmos Festa, Sakura Furusato Square

Early fall in Chiba brings the cosmos bloom, and the Sakura Cosmos Festa offers a chance to enjoy a day out in nature admiring these colorful flowers! During the event, which is scheduled to be held from October 8-23, an estimated 500,000 cosmos flowers can be seen adorning the area around the large Dutch-style windmill here at Sakura Furusato Square. Come and view this lovely seasonal flower display before the late autumn foliage begins to appear.

Check out Gallery & Café FUNAKATA SOKO, built in a renovated 99-year-old stone warehouse in Chiba’s Tateyama City. This historic building is one of the last remaining structures here constructed with the prized ‘boshuishi’ stone excavated from the nearby Mt. Nokogiri. The café also houses a gallery that exhibits paintings of the Minamiboso area (southern Chiba) drawn by local artist Kazuo Mizoguchi. After he passed away in 2019, his family decided to devote this space to display some of the over 300 works of art he left behind. The Minamiboso area is known for its natural beauty, and the gallery here provides visitors with a chance to see these works which encapsulate the region’s character and charm.

One of Mr. Mizoguchi’s daughters, a certified English speaking tour guide, Kaori Sasho, runs the café and looks forward to your visit to this slice of preserved local history. Learn more in English on their website: funakatasoko.com or follow: @funakatasoko

📷 A past scene from the Sawara Grand Festival

Katori City’s Sawara Grand Festival takes place twice a year—once in summer and once in fall—with this year’s autumn festivities coming up soon on October 7-9. The celebrations here are rooted in three centuries of history, highlighted by the giant floats that are pulled through the city’s historic quarter of Sawara. If you can’t make it here next weekend, you can still see the floats on display at any time of year at the Suigo Sawara Float Museum.
