Fuji Shibazakura Festival (Pink Phlox Festival)

Shibazakura by Shelly 3Toward the end of April through the beginning of June, you can see amazing fields of 800,000 pink, white, and lavender blooms at the base of Mount Fuji. Bring your camera and enjoy this great photo opportunity.  As well there are booths selling all kinds of food and desserts. It is a bit of a walk from the parking area to the flowers and it is a gravel-surface so wear comfortable shoes.  It is also cooler close to the mountain than it is in Yokota.  Stroller friendly.  Parking is ¥500. Admission is ¥600 for adults, ¥250 for kids. The website for the festival is www.shibazakura.jp/eng/index.html.   GPS coordinates: 35.437614, 138.601688.  It is located at the base of Mt. Fuji near Lake Motosu.  – Shelley Maroon, April 2013, photos below by Linda Bell May 2014.
