Amazing Scenery -- Shibazakura Bloom!


Shibazakura bloom from mid April to about late May. They spread over the ground like a pink carpet, and dazzle the eyes of those who visit. The following introduces three famous sites for Shibazakura that can be accessed easily


During the time when the first flowers bloom each year, the “Fuji Shibazakura Festival” is held. The view of Mt Fuji and shades of pink of the blooming shibazakura is spectacular. There are six different varieties and more than around 800,000 shibazakura, covering 2.4 hectares of land.
