Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival 2025

Come for the blossoms, stay for the resort

Venue: Kawazu When: Early Feb - Early Mar 2025
Japan's cherry blossom events generally rely on the Japan Meteorological Agency's forecasts. Since blossom dates are subject to change, please always check the venue's official site before you visit 🌸

Nestled along the coast of Japan's Izu Peninsula, Kawazu is a town that would be easy to pass by. But looks can be deceiving, and that's definitely the case with Kawazu. Each year between February and March, this town hosts the Kawazu Sakura Festival, one of Japan's most unique cherry blossom festivals.

Unlike regular cherry blossoms, the Kawazu cherry blossoms begin blooming earlier, last longer, and are graced with a vibrant pink hue. Along with a stay at the nearby Izu Imaihama Tokyu Resort, this is a trip you will never forget!

I'm so excited for the Kawazu cherry blossoms. We have some here in Saitama that will hopefully bloom in mid February too.
