A beautiful outdoors park with flowers planted in different designs! The most popular of all is a miniature mountain Fuji with flowers of different colors imitating the real one with snowy top.
There’re many food vendors over there too, so you can enjoy different types of food and sweets!
Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area!

Absolutely beautiful park to visit during the flower festival. The grounds are so beautiful and they have a ton of delicious food trucks to enjoy your visit. Parking is 500 yen and can get busy in the weekend, but the lot is massive.

It was a really nice place out from the city. ♥️ Fresh Air, good weather, quiet sorroundings and a beautiful scenery 💯 God blessed my eyes to see this.

Very beautiful park at the peak time. You’ll amazing photos here. On a clear day you could see Mount Fuji along with the flower beds. Quite crowded at the peak time during spring. If you’re staying for more than a day or two, only then recommended, else visit other recommended places near Fuji first.

Shibazakura (pink moss or phlox moss in English) is one of the most popular spring flowers in Japan. The site is located 3 km away from Lake Motosuko within Fuji 5 Lakes (Fujigoko) site. Visitors enjoy an amazing contrast of pink flowers and the blue sky and mountain.
The festival is held for one month and a half from mid April, yet the most recommended time for viewing is early to mid May.
