Nanyo Chrysanthemum Festival (Miyauchi venue)

A traditional chrysanthemum festival that glitters with the skills of the chrysanthemum doll makers and flower artists

Nanyo Chrysanthemum Festival is held around Kumano Taisha Shrine and Nanyo Chuo Flower Park from early October to mid-November every year. Chrysanthemum dolls were first displayed in a restaurant in 1912. A chrysanthemum flower fair was then held from the following year. This festival, which has been held more than 100 times, has the longest history in Japan as a chrysanthemum festival decorated with chrysanthemum dolls. 


The Miyauchi venue around Kumano Taisha Shrine is decorated with flower art from early to mid-October. This gives brilliant color to Kumano Taisha Shrine that boasts a history of more than 1,200 years. Observe the sophisticated techniques of the designers and flower artists. You will surely be attracted by the distinctive atmosphere in particular on the day when the flower art is illuminated. There are also days when a market is held with stalls selling coffee, snacks and general goods.
