The place is beautiful especially with Mt. Fuji at the background. The mountain is so majestic but before noon the picture doesn't come out good because of the sun exposure. Good to visit but best to avoid during golden week. The traffic during golden week was terrible, took one hour for a 7km drive going to the park... The trip back to Tokyo wasmore than twice the usual travel time.

Beautiful place to visit. Choose the best timing as the flowers may just start to bloom. Some merchandise and souvenir you can get from here. Delicious foods as well.

Lots of tourist and pretty crowded on a Saturday morning. Variety of flowers is pretty limited. Visit this place more for the scenary and pink flower beds. Expect to spend half a day getting to and fro the event venue.

Great place to view nature. I love seeing the awesome colourful flowers 💐. You'll take at least 2 hours to enjoy the place and snap lovely photos

OK so this is pretty cool and something I've never seen anywhere else in the world. Given I visited in golden week, it felt very overcrowded and we all brought the local traffic to a crawl for 5km. If you're in the area, or in Hakone as I was, then take the drive and also enjoy the countryside en route.
