Every spring across Japan, crowds gather for the much anticipated hanami, or "flower viewing". While cherry blossoms are most popular, the warmth of spring paints the landscape in a pallet of colors with many different kinds of flowers. A short trip from Fukushima Station brings you to Hanamiyama Park--literally "Flower Viewing Mountain" Park. The place is huge and offers a wide range of flower viewing opportunities. Take a rest on some benches to take in the whole view, or stroll one of three walking courses (the longest is an hour) to take in all this flower paradise has to offer.
From Fukushima Station, take the #6 bus. a round-trip ticket costs 500 yen. Be mindful of when the last bus is or you may need a taxi or walk an hour back to the station.
