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.

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.

Lovely view of My.Fuji with the vivid Shibazakura flowers in the field. The downside to this event was that food was a bit overpriced and the observation deck had a long line. The food was good but not a lot of Yamanashi food specialities, but mostly regular Japanese food you could find in Tokyo and elsewhere throughout Japan.
