Feb/10 - Mar/10, 2020 Izu Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival4.1
from 2/10 '20 to 3/10 '20
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.

After a colleague gave me a heada up on the cherry blossom happening in februar at Kawazu, I went for a roadtrip on Izu peninsula. Kawazu has the cherry blossom, but on a sunny day, it is also very nice and calming to take in the view of the pacific. On the way i also visited Joren water fall and Jogosaki light house. Both of them are nice to visit, but maybe not spectacular

Stayed in this Hotel in 2018, had a wonderful experience! Food was so tasty, special hot spring set in the boat, cherry blossoms were so amazing!
We had a good time, the owner of this hotel was so nice to us even we were the only foreign group!
If you want to visit this place, stay here, 5 to7 mins walking distance to train station and grocery store. Very convenient!

This is the place to come for a massive row of early blooming cherry blossoms (mid-Feb to early March). It has a row of stalls during this period selling snacks and hot food. A good place to stroll along at lunch time and take plenty of photos. Parking near the venue is paid (700 yen) and can get chaotic with the crowds during blooming season
