SAND & FLOWER FESTA

SAND & FLOWER FESTA

SAND & FLOWER FESTA at Fukiagehama is held in Minamisatsuma, which is located at the southern end of Mainland Kyushu in Japan.

The first Festa was held in 1987. The event was designed with passion for town renewal by utilizing local beautiful sand beach.

In order to exhibit art work of high levels, relevant groups of Japan Sand Art Federation and professional sand artists in the world are invited to the Festa. It has become the biggest sand art festa with 100,000 or more visitors during a session.

Sakyu no Mori Kinpou, a main site of the Festa, is located in Fukiagehama which is facing the East-China Sea and counted as one of the Japan's three biggest dune.

Our aim is to renew our understanding on the importance of the nature and the environment by utilizing the sand of Fukiagehama and to make the event worthy for the 21st century in which the human beings and the nature are harmonized well.
