I made it a day trip to Saitama to see the 5 million spider lilies. It was also a festival from 14-28 Sep with food stalls etc. Unfortunately the flowers were late this year even though I went on 23 Sep, so it was free entry into the gardens. There were some flowers, just not the impressive sea of red I was expecting to see. It was still a pleasant day out of the city and you can see many families having picnics by the river.

Every year is beautiful, but timing is everything. Went last Friday, so early Oct.'19 is perfect! Beautiful Red Carpet in all directions. The reds are deeply vivid in the morning light but sunset adds a nice glow. The name Kinchaku (means drawstring bag popular for Ukata) which is the shape formed by the Komagawa River which is fun to 'skip' stones or relax around (take sitting sheet).

Also catch the Fuyoo Bushes around the parking area- they are 'Drunken Fuyoo', means bloom white in the morning but dark pink by mid-afternoon. Parking was 500yen/ car and 100/motorcycle.

The number of food stalls has really increased this year, ice cream, beer, local goods, soba, curry, oden. Pamphlets in English and Korean, might have Chinese. Restroom. Diaper changing & Feeding Room.

Went here during autumn equinox when the red spider lilies were in full bloom, which was amazing. The location is just a bit off Tokyo, and that makes it very suitable for a day trip. There are lots of stalls from local vendors in the area during the "peak season", so you can also have a look at their wares while visiting the park.

曼珠沙華祭りがありました。一面の曼珠沙華は赤い絨毯を敷いたようです。見事なみごたえがありお勧めです。例年、秋分の日前後が見頃のようです。混雑していますが写真も綺麗に撮れます。私達は日高市役所に車を止めてシャトルバスで行きましたがどちらも無料で15分おきにバスは出ていて途中、高麗神社で乗り降りも自由ですので便利です。祭りでは日高市近郊の物産ブースで食べ歩きが出来ます。
Very beautiful like a red carpet ! You can eat Hidaka-city area' products , chestnuts, milk, tea, meat....

Located in Hidaka, Saitama Prefecture. The park is accessible at a walking distance of 15 minutes from the Koma railway station on the Seibu-Chichibu Line.
This park is best visited in the month of September when the spider lilies are in full bloom. The bloom is usually during the last 2 weeks of the September.
There is an entry fee to the park and that is very minimal considering the wonderful sight of the large stretch of Spider lilies along the river side and in the forest areas within the park.
This is a good one day activity from Tokyo during the month of September. Do check the local listings and notifications before visiting this park for more details.

There is a Spider Lilies Festival in Kinchakuda Park this term. Red flowers were Blooming beautifully!! We went to Koma station and walking to the park about 15 minuets. There is a river just closed to the park and we had a mini picnic with sandwiches we brought.
Cosmos flowers are also blooming and you can see a pretty country side around the park.
If you want to see Koma Shrine, it’s pretty far from the park. (More than 30 minuets one way walk so be ready...)

The view is spectacular! You don't have to worry getting lost on finding this place from Koma station as there is a huge crowd going towards the same direction. Just follow the crowd & in 15 mins, you will reach the park. Sea of red colors in all directions. Somehow, I missed the cosmos fields. Guess I got confused with the red colors everywhere ^_^;
Highly recommend if you are in Japan on their blooming season!

We had a Japanese friend who invited us so she knew how to time this trip. The red spider lilys were in full bloom, perfect weather, we went into the stream for a few steps, did some short hiking on the hill, ate some typical matsuri food and saw a performance with a monkey artist. One of the best days in my 6 months stay in Japan so far.

On 30 September we drove to Kinchakuda Park to check out the red spider lilies. I had seen a photo which indicated there were mass plantings of these flowers. And we were not disappointed. However I suspect they would have been even more spectacular a week earlier as there were a number of flowers that were on their last legs. I found this surprising since the Saitama tourist info brochure I had read indicated the carpet of red flowers "carpet all of Kinchakuda when in bloom from September to October". But the effect was nevertheless stunning. The garden beds of flowers line meandering paths along a shallow riverbed under numerous green shady trees so the contrast of green and red is stunning. There is also a fabulous wooden and iron bridge which is architecturally impressive and straddles above a field of red spider lilies. We visited on a week day and it was pleasant walking around without too many crowds. Near the spider lilies in a neighbouring part of the park is a field of cosmos which were also in bloom. Next to the field is an old style Japanese house with a traditional water wheel.

There were a number of stalls at the park selling a variety of traditional Japanese food and crafts. Parking facilities are available at a cost of 500yen per car. There was no fee to enter and view the flowers. Also check out the hay field at the top of the cosmos field which has a row of about a dozen cute and quirky scarecrows.

I am not sure if this park would be worth visiting outside of the red spider lily blooming season however there did appear to be a trekking trail that takes you across the river to 2 temples, the furtherest being 2.5 Km away, We did not however have time to do this trek. If you visit this park, it is worth going to visit Koma Shrine as it is only approx. 1.5km away.

The sea of spider lilies is the main attraction in Kinchakuda Park. It is a sight to behold. As expected there lots of visitors and taking photos is somewhat a challenge. Outside of the park you can also see a field of cosmos. It is very accessible and will only take 10-15 minutes by foot from the station.

There’s a brook / river below where you can relax and even camp during the day. There’s also a cliff and a lake, around 3 km walk from the park but we weren’t able to reach it. But better to stay around the park area as there were lots of mosquitos on the trek to the cliff.

If you are interested in abandoned places, you can do a detour on the left instead of turning right leading to the cliff / lake.
