The perfect combo of pink and yellow

Venue: Roadside station Shimogamo Onsen Yunohana When: Early Feb - Mid Mar 2024

The city of Minamiizu is located at the southern tip of Shizuoka's Izu Peninsula, where approximately 800 cherry blossom trees are planted on both sides of the Aono River for over four kilometers. In addition, the nearby Hino Nanohana Field spans a vast three hectare space full of vibrant yellow flowers. The Minamiizu Sakura and Nanohana Festival celebrates both blooms, and there will be various stalls selling food and other items.

From February 5th to 28th during the festival dates there will also be rickshaw rides available along the riverbank, with a 5-minute course priced at 500 yen per person or a 20-minute course priced at 2,000 yen per person.
