(Mid- to late October)
Mt. Matsuda Herb Garden holds Herb Festivals twice a year (spring and autumn). The herb festival held in autumn (October) is also called “sage festival”, as it is the best time to go out to see sage that is used for meat dishes and tea. You can enjoy herbal dishes tailored to the season at the Herb Building’s restaurant.
Autumn Fishing Festival
Masu salmon and trout fishing competitions are held twice a year at fishing spots in the clear stream of Nakatsu River flowing through Western Tanzawa. Anyone can partake in mountain stream fishing while enjoying fresh greenery in spring or the autumn leaves in fall. This river is stocked with various rare types of trout and salmon.
