Shizuoka Prefecture – Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival

Kawazu cherry trees are a type of cherry tree found in Shizuoka Prefecture’s Kawazu. Every year, they bloom for about a month from early February to early March. They have a variety of characteristics that set them apart from the usual Yoshino cherry trees that are found all across Japan: Kawazu cherry trees have larger flowers with a darker pink color, they bloom earlier, and their period of blooming long, around a month.
Many people visit Kawazu every year to see the early-blooming cherry blossoms.
As of January 22nd 2017, the cherry blossoms have already begun to bloom, even if it’s just a few so far!

Jogasaki Coast is the definitive view spot of Higashiizu, Shizuoka Prefecture. It is also part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park.
Jogasaki Coast is formed out of igneous rock from eruptions of Mt. Omuro around 4000 years ago. Over time, the ocean eroded portions of the rock away. Today, the Jogasaki Coast spans around 9 kilometers.
To get the best views of the coast, we recommend looking out over the ocean from the nearby suspension bridge or taking a tour boat to get a great view of the cliffs.
