Hiked up to Hanamiyama Park in January from Funabacho. Crews busy pruning the peach orchards with heavy snow on the ground. Walking up from the river can be difficult given the narrow space for walking alongside the roads leading up to the park. Recommend walking the smaller streets up to the park. View from above the orchards is worth the... More

Free, beautiful flower park that's great for a spring stroll. Lots of different varieties, though of course it's popular during sakura season.

Disclaimer: I'm a US citizen living in Fukushima since 2008, and imagine spending the rest of my career, even the rest of my life, here. So, maybe I'm biased. Hanamiyama (花見山、flower-viewing-mountain) is just a short ride from Fukushima Station on special buses that are arranged during peak cherry-blossom season. The people of Fukushima take good care of this attraction, and... More

We could only travel to Tokyo from 11 April and were worried when we read reports of an early blooming of the cherry blossom this year due to the warmth and rains. Checking the Sakura forecast, we made plans to chase the flowers as they bloomed using the JR pass that we have purchased beforehand through JTB in Singapore. Upon... More

One of the very best spots in Japan for plum and cherry blossom in early to mid April. Shuttle bus runs every thirty minutes during daytime in the peak season. This is a free private land of garden farmers opened to the general public by generosity, so do take note that no drink partying and all rubbish must be taken... More

The hill was covered with hundreds of thousands of flowers. Incredible. Everything was perfect. I can not forget this place.

The best place ever!!! This place got 3 stars rating (The highest score) from JNTO website. No wonder why it is crowded even in the morning. Variation of flowers resulted into colourful sceneries. Flee market nearby is pretty lively. The greatest thing of this place is free admission.

Being in Tokyo a little late for the cherry blossom season, I was looking for a place where the trees were still in full bloom. Gladly I found Hanamiyama which was only about 3 hours train and bus ride from Tokyo (bullet train + 500 yen for a round-trip bus). I have seen a lot of parks in my life... More

I would love to re-visit this garden when the Cherry Blossoms are in bloom as it was very beautiful. A short bus trip from Fukushima train station, but a little hard to find from there. In peak season I am sure more buses run and the crowds would lead the way up the hill to the garden. If you like... More
