It’s 2017 in February, The Beauty of Sakura is starting to show again. Actually It’s too early in the season.
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.
By the way, There is no entrance Fee. There is nothing to pay in here except when you buy from the local stores. No worries!
don’t forget to bring you camera get the canon mirrorless m5! (i will get a small comission if you buy from here and it will help me a lot to make more blog)
Kawazu is near the Sea so its not surprising if they sell some local seafoods as well.
There are also a lot of Hot spring around the place if you want to.
I hope you enjoy my photos, If you want to know how to go there just google the train station that you are near going to kawazu station. example tokyo station to kawazu station, then google will tell you exactly how to ride the train. Overall this was an amazing experience for me, Ive seen a lot of sakura but this pink sakura in kawazu is amazing!
