You can see the fully bloomed Kawazu Sakura ( early flowering variety of cherry tree ) with Mount Fuji between February and March – 1 or 2 months before the cherry blossoms season.

This place is Nishi Hirahatake park at Matsuda town in Kanagawa prefecture.
Matsuda town is located in the south western part of Kanagawa prefecture.

The most famous place for Kawazu Zakura is Kawazu town in Izu peninsula.
Compared to it, Kawazu Zakura in Matsuda town isn’t popular.
But the scenery with Mount Fuji is becoming famous in these years.

I’m very glad that I can see this scenery again this year!
Kawazu Sakura are fully bloomed in other places at the same time, so I suddenly got busy making plans to travel.

There were many spots that I could take many pictures of the pink and yellow flowers, my favorite one is this.
I like the contrast of pink, yellow and blue!

The view of Matsuda town and Mt.Hakone below my eyes was gorgeous.
And the contrast of pink and yellow was very beautiful,too!
I happened to find this photo spot when I was about to go back home after taking many pictures and videos.

A rest space that has panoramic view of Matsuda town.
This park is located on the top of the hill.
So you can also see the sea (Sagami bay) in the distance.

Photo spot at Matsuda Cherry Blossom Festival
There were a stepladder in the middle of cherry‐tree‐lined path.
You can climb it freely and take photo.
But many people made a long line.

From top of the stepladder , you can take a picture such as this.
It was nice, though I don’t think it’s worth  waiting for a long time.

The place in the yellow circle at the parking lot is best photo spot of cherry blossoms with Mt.Fuji.

Cherry blossom and Mt.Fuji

Same as last year,I went to Matsuda Cherry Blossom Festival in Matsuda town in Japan.
Cherry blossoms(Kawazu Sakura) were in full bloom.
They were on the top of the hill.
So in the sunny day you can see beautiful cherry blossoms and Mt.Fuji at the same time.

At first I won’t go there this day.
But I found that I could see the Mt.Fuji very clear.
So I changed my plan and decided to go.

I arrived there at 9:20 A.M. by car.
Some cars made line in front of parking lot because it was full.
But same as last year, I could enter into it in about 10 minutes.

Or you can go there by bus from Shin-Matsuda Station.
