You can also come to the Sakura (Cherry Blossom) Festival which is held from late march to early April, while all the trees are in full bloom.
During the evening, you can enjoy the lantern illuminated until 9p.m.
The festival will be primarily held at the Shiki city hall parking lot where you can find stands for shopping and also receive special sales on Iizuna-machi in Nagano prefecture and Shiki products.
