Event Roundup: April 2022

Celebrate new beginnings alongside the blossoming spring-time flowers and an interesting line-up of both returning and brand-new events!

Our long awaited April 2022 Event Roundup is finally here! The spring-time events are organized in the following order: Exhibitions (and other cultural events), Strawberry Picking events, and finally the all-time popular Cherry Blossom Viewing events! Due to the earthquake on March 17th as well as COVID-19 concerns, some events are held in limited capacity or have been cancelled completely. All the events we've gathered in this post should still be ongoing, however we recommend double checking on the event's official page just in case (feel free to contact us if you need help with the Japanese pages!)

Sairi Yashiki's exhibition for Boy's day, also known as Tango-no Sekku, a celebration from the Edo period.

Until 1948, Children's Day was formerly known as Boys' Day (Tango-no Sekku), a celebration that solidified during the Edo period. As the Hinamatsuri on March 3 blossomed as the festival for girls, Tango-no Sekku on May 5 took root as a festival for boys, and displays of more “masculine” items became customary. The tradition of displaying armor and helmets actually originated from samurai society, where it was customary to offer armor and helmets to shrines to pray for personal safety. Nowadays, they are displayed in hope that they will protect children from traffic accidents and illnesses. At Sairi Yashiki, you can admire displays of armor and warrior dolls as well as explore the rest of the Sairi property for a historically immersive experience!

Admission Fee: ¥620 adults, ¥310 children
