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

The last time I visited Fukushima, it was in mid April 2008. Fukushima was not in my 2012 itinery. Call it self preservation. But as I was traveling from Aizuwakamatsu towards the direction of Sendai, when the train master announced "we will soon be making a brief stop at Fukushima", I had this sudden urge to see Hanamiyama again. I... More

Hanamiyama Park has soft, gentle colors from an Impressionist palette, drawn entirely by nature.
