Note: This event has already passed.

Our first destination will be Saijoji Temple, which is established in 1394. Due to their Tengu goblin legend, many Takageta (tall wooden clogs) are dedicated in the huge temple site. See the clogs and guess how tall Tengu is. Our next stop will be the rice field located at the smallest town in  Kanagawa Prefecture, Kaisei Town. 5,000 hydrangeas are planted along the waterway and hydrangea festival will be held this time of year. Admire colorful hydrangeas then enjoy local food and festival event.
