Cherry Blossom Festival


About Cherry Blossom Festival

A grand panorama of Mt. Fuji and cherry blossoms!
‘Kawazu’ cherry blossoms will be blooming in February, earlier than other kinds of cherry blossom. You can enjoy the blossoms in and around Matsuda Town and especially in Mt. Matsuda’s Nishihirabatake Park. The blossoms of about 360 kawazu cherry trees, as well as rapeseed flowers, color Mt. Matsuda in spring colors. At their peak time they are lit up in the evening as well. The night view of the Ashigara Plains together with the lit-up cherry blossoms make for a wondrous and unique scenery for your enjoyment.
During the festival period, many other kinds of events will also be held in the town. Please enjoy the Matsuda Cherry Blossom Festival!
