Kawaguchiko Herb Festival is held in Oishi Park at the shore of lake Kawaguchiko in Yamanashi prefecture every year.
This park is a home to wide variety of beautiful flowers in every season.
Between June and July you can see beautiful purple carpet of lavenders filled with the rich sweet perfume.
The best time to visit is the beginning of July when lavenders are fully bloomed.

I arrived at Oishi Park at around 8:00.
More flowers have been bloomed than 3 days ago.
I took this picture where the lavenders beautifully bloomed with 2 times zoom by iPhone7 Plus.

The best timing to shoot is early in the morning of the clear day because Mt.Fuji is often covered with clouds in the summer.
When I took this picture (with 3 times zoom by iPhone7 Plus) at 8:30, Fuji went behind the clouds 30 minutes later although it was cloudless in 6:00.

Lavenders weren’t fully bloomed like this.
The best time to see will be between the beginning and mid of July.

July 15 – Best time to see in 2017

I went to Fujikawaguchiko Herb Festival when I could see Mount Fuji clearly.

When I visited there, the peak of herbs were already past.
But still beautiful!!

The best photo spot in here is in front of the free parking lot.
Because you can take a picture of Mt.Fuji,lavender fields and lake at the same time with the best composition.
This place is wide and anywhere is fine.
I chose the spot near the Kawaguchiko Shizen Seikatsukan.

Many tourist comes around 9:00 A.M. and it will makes you hard to take a beautiful picture.
Especially right after the sightseeing bus arrives, people rushes.
So you should finish shooting until that time.
And Mount Fuji is often covered with cloud after 9:00 AM in the summer.

I stood in front of this blue fence.
Then I tapped the shutter button of iPhone with 1.7 ~ 2 times zoom.
I stretched my arm as possible as I could, to take lavenders clearly.
