Shibazakura Festival Tours

On our Shibazakura Festival tours you will have the chance to see thousands of moss phlox, which are also known as ground cherry blossoms. The best places to see the flowers are at the Fuji Shibazakura Festival and the Shibazakura Festivals of Hokkaido. The Shibazakura Festivals of Hokkaido is best experienced at the Higashimokoto Moss Phlox Park. The creation of the field started with only a box full of the seeds. After 8 years of hard work the Higashimokoto Park was founded in 1956. Since the planting of the seeds more have been added to flower park and now it covers over 100,000 square meters on a hillside overlooking Takinoue. It was started and mostly built by one man named Chubachi Sueyoshi. His sister obtained a single moss phlox plant shortly after the end of World War II and brought it from Rubeshibe to Higashimokoto. During the Higashimokoto Moss Phlox Festival, which is from early May to early June, the fields are illuminated at night.

Fuji Shibazakura Festival is a 1 ½ month long celebration that usually starts mid-April to 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.
