There will be a celebration involving 200,000 daffodils planted around Kasai Rinkai park’s giant Ferris wheel on the 7th and 8th of February. Yes, 200,000. If you don’t think that many flowers warrants a trip out to Kasai, rest assured there are other activities taking place: concerts, an agricultural products market, and the chance for kids to try stilt walking and have their photo taken with the Ferris wheel’s mascot Daiya-chan (Diamond-chan). Most events take place around the Ferris wheel which is hard to miss.
Kasai Rinkai park, located next to the sea and next to a bird protection zone, is a large green-space that is worth a trip at any time. There is also an excellent aquarium in the park but be warned that one of it’s main attractions – a giant tank of tuna fish – is currently experiencing problems. It’s probably still worth a visit though as there are a lot of other fish to see, and penguins!
