Fuji Shibazakura festival
Along with Hitachi Seaside Park’s Nemophila Harmony Festival, the Fuji Shibazakura Festival is yet another extremely popular flower festival located near Lake Motsu at the base of Mt. Fuji.
Each year for one month, mid-April to mid-May, people across Japan and from all over the world come in their thousands to enjoy a beautifully parterre of Shibazakura flowers (800,000) with Mt. Fuji in the background. If your time in Japan is limited and you can only visit one flower festival, the Fuji Shibazakura Festival is a MUST, but be ready to get there as early as possible, even during the week, in order to enjoy this place in peace!
