Itadori Hydrangea Festival
関市板取あじさいまつり （Seki-shi Itadori Ajisai Matsuri）
10,000 hydrangea flowers in full-bloom paint the world in a variety of colors!
During the blooming season, the area becomes the "Seki Hydrangea Village," which acts as a one-stop destination for all hydrangea-related events. The most prominent of these is the "Hydrangea Village Festival 2012," where you can savor the local tastes of Itadori and enjoy a myriad of hands-on activities and events, including ones geared towards children. You can even come away with a free hydrangea seedling so that you can grow your own!
Other nature-centric events include a seminar on catching sweetfish and "river climbing," a kind of mountaineering in which you follow a stream all the way to its mouth!
