Hydrangeas at Tokyo’s Hakusan Shrine

Even if you want to see beautiful hydrangeas in bloom, travelling far for them can be difficult. As such, I’ll be introducing a place I recommend visiting for people staying in the heart of Tokyo: Hakusan Shrine and Hakusan Park, located in Tokyo’s Bunkyo Ward. This area is famous for having the most hydrangeas growing in the metropolitan area, with around 3000 hydrangeas planted. A hydrangea festival is held every year in mid-June, as the hydrangeas reach their peak beauty.

Hydrangea Festival in the Fuchu city local forest museum

Every early summer a hydrangea festival is held in the Fuchu city local forest museum (Kyodo no Mori Museum) located in Tokyo’s Fuchu, when around 10,000 plants of hydrangea are in bloom amid the museum buildings in a traditional style, and the museum becomes an ideal destination for visitor to take a pleasant walk while viewing flowers.

5 Reasons to Visit the Spring 2019 “Fuji Shiba-sakura Festival”

Many of the travelers visiting Japan in the springtime are seeking out the beautiful pink blooms of cherry blossoms. This time we will be introducing shiba-sakura, or moss phlox, which spreads a carpet of pink blooms on the ground rather than on trees. The “2019 Fuji Shiba-sakura Festival,” where you’ll be able to fully enjoy these beautiful flowers, will be taking place from April 13th (Saturday) until May 26th (Sunday), 2019, at Fuji Motosuko Resort (Minamitsuru-gun, Yamanashi Prefecture).
