8. Kurihara Lotus Festival

Dates: 25th July – 22nd August 2022

Location: Kurihara City, Miyagi

Beautiful Lake of lotuses in Full Bloom at Uchinuma during the Lotus Festival July to August 2022

During the summer, Lake Izunuma and Lake Uchinuma is transformed into a blanket of lilies and lotuses in full bloom that cover about 75% percent of the lake's surface, marking the start of the Lotus Festival! We highly recommend taking a relaxing 30 minute sight-seeing boat ride —operated by local fishermen— through the thousands of floating purple flowers that color the lake. Since the lotus flower typically blooms in the early morning and closes up in the afternoon, its best to come early to take in the spectacular sight of the flowers in full bloom!
