Yame Kurogi Wisteria Festival（八女黒木大藤まつり） is held every year between mid-April to early May at the Susanoo Shrine（素盞嗚神社）in Kurogimachi, Yame City.
The wisteria tree in Kurogi is an over 600-year-old national Natural Treasure and its vines extending for meters. At night, the tree is lit up and looks just gloriously colorful. In addition, during the festival, you will also find food stalls and local products exhibited at the shrine. Last but not least, the local brewery in Kurogi will be opened for visitors.
