Gongendo Tsutsumi (Japanese: 権現堂堤) is located in Satte. It is a noted place in Saitama, and a prefectural park. About 1,000 Yoshino cherry trees are spread out over 1 km along the top of the levee of the Gongendo river. During cherry blossom season, many visitors from all over the prefecture and beyond come to enjoy the picturesque pink and yellow of cherry and rapeseed blossoms, and vendors set up stalls. The levee is also sown with hydrangea and red spider lilies, which bloom in the summer and fall.
Kagami Yoshimizu, the creator of the Lucky Star series, was born in Satte city. He has now moved out of Satte city, although his house has been reformed into a Lucky Star museum, made to resemble Konata Izumi's (one of the main characters in the series) house.
