Lived close to the spot for several years and visited there often. Many events throughout the year: the tulip festival and the Sakura fireworks festival and the cosmos (flower) event are the most famous ones. There's also a Dutch windmill because of Sakura city's Dutch relations. Nice place to visit, but not much to do outside the events. Also the view to the Inbanuma lake is beautiful.

It is not avaible on the rental car gps, we rely solely on Google Maps to get there. The place is pretty but we went on a public holiday so it is not operating and also due to winter, there are no flowers, it will be prettier in other seasons!

While traveling and site seeing with my Japanese friend, he managed to find this place as last year he couldn't. At first, I thought ok what can a flower festival be like in Japan. Well outside of Holland, I was taken in by the countless rows of colorful tulips. At least hundreds of thousands and row after row of multi and solid colored tulips. You can pay about $5.00 and pick your choice, which I did to bring to his wife for the dinner table that night. Also a person can walk among them, in between rows and get all the close up pictures you want. A school choir was performing and the vendors have some unusual foods and treats In early April, if you have the time and are in the area it is well worth the stop. Although the park is free, we paid $10.00 for close parking. Otherwise by car it was $5.00 to park and walk about 4 or 5 blocks. It was remarkable! I would recommend it only if convenient for the traveler. I would have yen to purchase items.

Furusato Square is located in Sakura, which is also called Ciba Sakura by JR trains. This was the sight of the Tulip Festa, which runs every April or so. I am not sure if this big open field holds any other flower shows during other parts of the year. It is not accessible by major rail lines or bus lines, but I will tell you the best way to go. I just did it, and it worked out ok. Take the north exit from Ciba Sakura station. This is a JR line and you most likely will have a JR Pass. You will be at a bus stop. Take the number 1 bus to the Keisei-Sakura train station. Enter the station, go up and over to the opposite side of the station, and special busses will take you to the Furusato Square. The number 1 bus cost 190 yen. One driver said ok to use JR, the other said pay. The special bus to the Tulip Fest was 100 yen. Unfortunately there is no direct route, as you really are out in farm country. It is worth doing. See review for Tulip Fest.
