  • Fuji Shibazakura Festival 2023

    15 April – 28 May 2023
    Fuji Motosuko Resort


    The Fuji Shibazakura Festival (富士芝桜まつり) is popular for its splendid view of a floral carpet in pink shades at the foot of Mt. Fuji.

    The garden is filled with the moss phlox or “shiba-zakura” which means “lawn cherry blossom” in Japanese, as the grass flower is shaped like sakura.

    We visited the “Fuji Shibazakura Festival 2023” to have a sneak peek for you.

    The venue is “Fuji Motosuko Resort“, located at Fujikawaguchiko Town, Minamitsuru District, Yamanashi Prefecture.

    From Tokyo, it is a nice getaway, of about two-hours’ bus ride on the expressway.

    A garden area is covered with approximately 500,000 moss phlox flowers.

    Eight varieties of moss phlox are in full bloom, seen against the background of Mount Fuji.

    The festival will last until the end of May.

    In 2023, the national average temperatures are rather high (so are the world temperatures, too).

    This means the earlier the best, to visit the garden.
