this bird is loving the beauty of sakura flowers

Sakura mostly start to bloom between late march to early april depending on where you are in japan and temperature. In Kawazu Shizuoka cherry blossom blooms early. Although cherry blossom only last for 2 weeks when its first started to bloom, Kawazu sakura last for 4 weeks starting from late february to early march. I discover this beauty on facebook and since i dont want to waste Time to see it in full Bloom I have decided to visit in valentines day.

As soon as bloom started, The Festival will also start. You will enjoy the Foods stalls around Kawazu Park selling a lot of varieties from sweet mochi’s, fruits, dried Fish , Sakura plants and more!

Kawazu is visited by a lot of locals and Foreigner not only because it blooms early but its only 2 hours away from Tokyo by train. Okinawa is also Famous for cherry blossom but its expensive to go there if you live far away from it. I am from Numazu Shizuoka so I travelled about 1 hour and 30 minutes but when I am about to go Home it took me longer because Train depart from schedules.
