The Kawazu-zakura cherry blossoms have become famous as the earliest blooming cherry blossoms around Tokyo areas. Kawazu-zakura bloom from early-February until early-March, while sakura bloom in Tokyo between late March and early April.
The outstanding characteristics of Kawazu-zakura are its large petals and the bright pink color. There are 8,000 cherry trees in Kawazu.
"The Kawazu-zakura Cherry Blossom Festival" is held during the blooming season and visited by a million of Japanese and foreign tourists. During the festival, there are a lot of food stands and souvenir shops so you can enjoy having local specialty.

Besides viewing Kawazu-zakura, you can also have the "Hot Spring Foot Bath" experience. Only by soaking your feet in the hot spring bath, you will be able to feel warm throughout your whole body. There are three Foot Bath spots in the festival area. "The Sakura Foot Bath"(9:00-17:00), "The Hosen Foot Bath", "Saburo Kawazu's Foot Bath" are good spots of viewing sakura while taking foot bath.

At night, light displays are set up each evening from 18:00-21:00 to illuminate the trees. Kawazu-zakura are planted on both side of sidewalk, it is called Cherry Blossom Tunnel, which fold over one and half mile long path, creating a tunnel-like effect. Especially at night, it provides an astonishing view for the visitors, much different than the one that can be seen during the day.
