In this month’s newsletter, we are featuring ‘Kuki‘ in Saitama Prefecture, only 45 minutes from Tokyo.

Summer is a great time to visit Kuki, as there is the Kuki Chouchin Festival in mid-July, during which huge floats with lanterns parade the city after dark.

Just before this, in mid-June, there is also the Lavender and Iris Festival, where visitors can enjoy the scenery and purchase lavender products.
