Early cherry blossoms and Mt.Fuji

You can see the fully bloomed cherry blossoms with Mount Fuji between February and March every year.
This place is Nishi Hirahatake park at Matsuda town in Kanagawa prefecture.
Matsuda town is located in the south western part of Kanagawa prefecture.

These cherry blossoms are called “Kawazu Zakura”.
It is an early flowering variety of cherry tree.
The most famous place for Kawazu Zakura is Kawazu town in Izu peninsula.

Kawazu Sakura
I took this picture at Kawazu town some years ago.

Compared to it, Kawazu Zakura in Matsuda town isn’t so popular.
But the scenery with Mount Fuji is becoming famous in these years.
(You can’t see Mt.Fuji in Kawazu town.)

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.

Cherry blossom and 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.
