Wild Sakura Trees - remember to visit the nearby area too
Apr 2015 • Friends
My Japanese friend brought me here, hoping to catch sakura in full bloom. We parked out car at the designated carpark for the park (a mere 5 min walk from the foothill) and took a leisurely hike up the park (5km - both ways).

This is a tranquil and well maintained park. We didn't see many visitors at all, and had the park to ourselves most of the time.

The hiking trail is mostly below the (very tall) sakura trees but unfortunately you won't be able to feel the beauty of it, as the flower are too high up. To better appreciate the sakura (there are supposedly 5,000 wild sakura trees in this park), you need to look at the mountain / hills opposite you.

We had a short picnic at their picnic area, overlooking the valley below.

I liked this park because it gave me the opportunity to view wild sakura trees, which are quite different from the ones in Tokyo parks. However, I do find the planted ones (different species) look more beautiful.

If you come here during the sakura season, you MUST drop by the road alongside the Tokyo Fuji Art Museum (a short drive from the park area). The sakura trees along that road out of this world! It was the most beautiful road I have ever seen (check out the pictures). There is a overhead bridge along that road. Climb up the bridge and feast your eyes with those up close and personal views on these lovely flowers. This is a very unique way of appreciating the sakura as you are literally at eye level with the flowers. Best of all, this is a quiet area, so there are very few people around.

You can also walk up to Soka University (at the end of the road). The university ground is also covered with beautiful sakura trees. We were very fortunate as the guards allowed us into the uni. ground, though I am not sure if this is a normal practice.
