Fuji Shibazakura Festival is held beside Lake Motosuko, the foot of Mount Fuji. About 800,000 Shibazakura (mossphlox) cover vast fields to give colors and stunning contrast of pink ground with the majestic Mount Fuji. The festival is the largest Shibazakura festival in Japan and annually held from mid-April to early June. As there are other various attraction, such as panoramic café, foot bath and local food stalls, you can even enjoy the event for a whole day. The breathtaking view will be unforgettable and worth visiting from Tokyo.

It is recommended that you reserved an expressway bus ticket for a round trip from Shinjuku to Kawaguchiko and purchase a Shibazakura liner at Kawaguchiko, instead of taking a direct bus from Shinjuku to Shibazakura Festival site.
If you are going to Shibazakura Festival, you should also enjoy the scenery of Mt. Fuji from Kawaguchiko and outdoor activities such as cycling and hiking. Kawaguchiko is one of the most popular destinations among foreign tourists.

It was amazing that shibazakura (moss phlox) bloomed at expansive site. The contrast of pink flowers and blue sky at the base of Mount Fuji was simply amazing!

There were a number of food stalls that serves local delicacies, and it was perfect for lunch.
We tried "Fujinomiya Yakisoba", "Yoshida no Udon", "Koshu Chicken Giblet Stew", "Original Shibazakura Croquettes", etc. It is good to try the food of the region that you cannot have in Tokyo.
