Field mustard & Mt.Fuji

You can take beautiful picture of Mount Fuji with field mustard at Azumayama Park(136.2 meters above sea level) in Ninomiya between January and February.
Ninomiya is a town located in Naka District, Kanagawa Prefecture near Tokyo.
The best time to visit here is the beginning of February.

Ninomiya station of JR line
The nearest station of Azumayama Park is Ninomiya station of JR line.

Path to Azumayama Park
Walk through the street between Ninomiya primary school and Ninomiya town hall.

Entrance of Azumayama Park
The street leads you to an entrance of Azumayama Park in 3 – 4 minutes.
This long stairway leads you to the park on top of this mountain.

Path to Azumayama Park
There is a crossroad.
Both of them leads you to the same destination, but turn to the left is better way.

Sengen Shrine at Azumayama Park
Sengen Shrine that enshrine Konohananosakuya-hime in Japanese mythology.

Path to Azumayama Park
There is a crossroad again.
Most people go to right because it gets a little shorter.
But if you go to left, you can see Azuma shrine that cherry blossoms are beautifully bloomed.

This wood bench seat in front of canola flower field is the best photo spot.

I took this picture by iPhone7 Plus without zoom.
Flowers might be damaged by the heavy snow a few days ago.

I took this picture with 6 times zoom by iPhone with attaching 2x telephoto lens of Switch 6 for iPhone 8 Plus / iPhone 7 Plus.
If you don’t wear any lens to your smartphone, you will need 8 times zoom.
To take better photo, hold your camera with sitting on the bench to get canola flowers as much as possible.
If you don’t tripod, you had better put your arm on wood fence as it tend to become blurry photo due to camera shake by zooming.
By the way this place is crowded with people after 10 A.M.
So 8 A.M to 9 A.M is the best timing to take picture without haste.

I visited there again at 6 Feb. 2018.
It seemed to be recover from the damage by the heavy snow.
But last year was more beautiful.
Anyway I could enjoy seeing the yellow carpet with Mt.Fuji this year again.


Information

【Fee】
Free

【Access】
・By Train
Tokyo station → 1h10min. by Tokaido Line → Ninomiya station → 20 minutes walk

・By Car
There is no parking lot in the park.
So if you come here by the car,use the pay parking lot.
The biggest one is Choei Daiichi Parking lot (140 cars available, 500 yen, 8:30 to 19:30.)
But it is a little far away. 10 minutes walk to the entrance of Azumayama Park.
So I always use Kitaguchi Parking lot(100 yen every 20 minutes) next to Ninomiya station.
