Saitama City is a city where modernized town areas and rich greenery exist in harmony. Especially, Minuma Tambo, located in the central part of the city, is a valuable extensive green space occupying a vast area that is easily accessible from the railway stations in the suburbs of Tokyo, and where rice fields, farms, copses, a rural scenery with rivers and Minuma-daiyousui (an agricultural waterway), and an abundance of nature cultivating lives are preserved even today.
“Saita-March – Minuma Two-Day Walk –” is held as a walking event that promotes fitness with healthy mind and body, while widely introducing Minuma Tambo’s natural environment and regional resources, and communing with nature.
If the event coincides with the flowering time, we will get to enjoy walking and cherry-blossom viewing at the same, which is another attraction of Minuma Tambo. (We are praying for their bloom.)
