Fuji Shibazakura Matsuri

Fuji Shibazakura Matsuri

Fuji Shibazakura Festival is a 1 ½ month long celebration that usually starts mid-April and finishes at the end of May. It is a festival that features the moss phlox flower with Mount Fuji in the background. There are over 800,000 moss phlox (shibazakura) planted throughout the area. The venue used is three kilometers away from Lake Motosuko, which is part of the Fuji Five Lakes. There are five varieties of moss phlox, which are Scarlet Flame, Autumn Rose, McDaniels Cushion, Tama no Nagare, and Little Dot. Amongst the pink fields there is a mound that is meant to be the shibazakura version of Mount Fuji. Once entering the park you will be taken flooded with an amazing field of shibazakura. The Panorama Footbath allows you to enjoy great views of the field while soaking your feet in hot water.

The Fujiyama Sweets pop-up café is a place where you can see the field with Mount Fuji in the background while having some drinks and pastries on the viewing deck. If the café is not what you are craving then there is the Mount Fuji Gourmet Festival, which is run onsite. Here they have a wide variety of food stalls for you to choose from to satisfy your hunger. After taking your fair share of photos you can pay for a commemorative photo to add another memory. There is also a pop up post office where you can get a commemorative stamp or send a postcard with the exclusive mark to whoever you want. Of course there is a souvenir shop in the Fuji Shibazakura Festival that has limited special items like cherry blossom flavored goods. It is also the place to buy your very own shibazakura plant that you can take home with you. In the souvenir shop there are more goods available that is limited to only the Fuji Shibazakura Festival so it is best to not miss out on the opportunity.
