Chrysanthemum Festival

The Japanese Garden of Hasselt is celebrating the Chrysanthemumfestival (Kikumatsuri) from 19 till 27 October. When the green summer leaves change their colour to red, yellow and green, and the chrysanthemums bloom paining the fields in their magnificent colours, fall is upon us. The Chrysanthemum is a flower that spans the globe and connects our little Belgium and the country of Japan. That is why, the Japanese Garden of Hasselt, celebrates this little flower every year in the Japanse tradition of the Chrysanthemumfestival.
