Yugawara is a seaside town where you can go in 2 hours from Tokyo by train.
It is known as a popular tourist destination with a lot of Onsen ( hot spring ).
About 4,000 red plums and white plums at the slopes of Mt.Makuyama look like a carpet of plum flowers.

Plum forest in Yugawara
Entrance of a short hiking trail in the plum grove of Mt.Makuyama.
Japanese texts on the wooden signboard means “plum grove in Yugawara”.
This trail takes you to the top of the mountain.

Ume no utage is held at the plum grove(Makuyama park) in Yugawara city in Japan.
4 thousands of plum(Ume) trees were fully bloomed.
It looked like a carpet of plum!
I took picture on the above from top of the hill.

I began walking from this place, near the parking lot.
There were many roads in the grove, so at first I didn’t know how to go to the top.
But the roads seemed to be  connected to each other.
So as I walked around toward above, I could arrived on top of the hill.
The slope was a little steep, so I got hotter while walking.

After finished seeing plums, I ate Soba and bought souvenir in this place.
It was also near the parking lot.
You can buy many local specialties.


When I left here and went back home, the parking lot was full and a lot of cars made long line.
