The Kasama Inari Shrine Chrysanthemum Festival began in 1908, when the chief priest at the time put together a gardening department to display chrysanthemum flowers in the grounds to help soothe the hearts of people who had been devastated by war and foster religious faith, with the belief that it would bring people closer to the earth and soothe their hearts.
During the festival approximately 5000 colourful chrysanthemum flowers of a number of varieties will be on display in the grounds of Kasama Inari Shrine.
