Cherry blossoms and Mt Fuji

I went to Azumayama park at Ninomiya town to see the fully bloomed cherry blossoms.
Ninomiya town is located at south part of Kanagawa prefecture.
You can see the beautiful scenery with Mount Fuji here between the beginning to mid of April every year.
This place isn’t famous compared to Hakone and lake Kawaguchi that is famous for the scenery of Mt.Fuji, but you can enjoy gorgeous landscape.
In 2016, the best time to see it was 6 April.
In 2017, cherry blossoms were fully bloomed at 14 April.

Compared to Hakone or Lake Kawaguchiko, this place is more close to Tokyo.
(Approx. 1.5 hour by JR line from Tokyo station)

Long stairs and slopes leads you to the Azumayama park.
It takes 10 -15 minutes.
If you want to take beautiful picture of Mt.Fuji, you should go there until 10:00 A.M.
Because Mt.Fuji often hide behind the clouds in the afternoon.
This day it became cloudy at 11:00 A.M.
