笠間稲荷神社The shrine to Inari at Kasama is one of the most important to the deity in Japan, after the famous shrine complex at Fushimi in Kyōto of course. The centre of Kasama used to be here, and the neighbourhood is still bustling around the shrine; the station is by comparison surrounded by farmland on the edge of town. The shrine’s main hall is enclosed with walled and roofed corridors and the entrance way has a large gatehouse. I didn’t see any torii at the shrine, instead there were several lavish gates.

The ropes in front of the shrine are quite impressive, making the shrine worth a short visit. The main shrine (the one with the ropes) is fairly new, and so not that exciting in and of itself. The older shrine (behind the rope one) is fenced off and you can only get a peek at it through the slats in the fence.
There also seem to be some hiking trails around the back of the shrine, though I'm not sure how extensive they are.
It's a nice place to visit if you're in the area, but probably not worth going out of your way for.

Every year at festival time, as many as 8,500 vividly colored azaleas bloom in red, white, pink, and purple, delighting sightseers. During the peak viewing time of Golden Week, visitors can see the gorgeous scenery of the sides of the low mountain colored a brilliant red by the azaleas. There are a variety of events during the festival, including open-air tea ceremonies, folk entertainments, and Performances by traditional Japanese orchestras.

If you are looking for good quality Japanese crockery& ceramics, this is a nice place. They have a good range, some super pricey but many are good to start or complete a collection. I hear there are nice private studios in Kasama but those can get ¥¥¥.

Ibaraki Prefecture's largest ceramics festival, Kasama Himatsuri, is held every year from April 29th to May 5th at the Kasama Geijutsu no Mori Park Event Square. More than 200 artists and ceramics makers participate in the event and display their works in their stalls, and there is also a restaurant run by the potters. This restaurant itself is a famous part of the Himatsuri. There are also fun event for kids, allowing the whole family to enjoy the event together, experiencing the artwork and food.
Kasama is north of Tokyo, and famous of "Kasama-yaki, earthenware in Kasama".
We went Himatsuri, festival of earthenware in Kasama. A lot of ceramic artists live in Kasama. And they have big selling exhibition on May and November everyyear. A lot of artist sell their works in their tent in that festival. We can see and buy traditional ones, or modern contemporary ones. however some of them are high price, most of them are reasonable price. Because Kasama-Yaki is daily use. There are too many tents to see.
In that festival, I divided Kasama-yaki into 4 types.
-Unique style, made by famous artists...... Complicated burn methods, Stylish, High cost, Hand made
-Cute Animal design....... low price, cute animal design, gentle color
-Daily use......low price, easy to use
-Others..... Plants pot, Haniwa etc...
In that festival, there is a lot of kind of local foods, beveridges, we also enjoy them.
Please use `Yakimono-liner (Kanto pottery liner)` . 1.5hour from Akihabara station in Tokyo. The number of buses are a few. Please check timetable and make reservation on Internet.

Starting in 1908, the "Kasama Chrysanthemum Festival" is Japan's longest standing chrysanthemum celebration. Approximately 10,000 chrysanthemums in various shapes and forms-such as standing chrysanthemums, cascading chrysanthemums, chrysanthemums sculpted with many blossoms forming a sphere, and chrysanthemum bonsai trees-are displayed throughout the event grounds, starting with the main event area of the Kasama Inari shrine, filling the space with a mix of colors in shades of yellow, white, pink and more. Additionally, during this time, events such as competitive chrysanthemum Exhibitions and horseback archery contests are be held.
