These include cherry blossom and peach blossom viewing courses, evening illumination events, fireworks, and more. A full list of the venues and the events taking place throughout the carnival can be found on the official website.

A starting point for the spring beauty in the area is the Fuefuki City Yatsushirofurusato Park - there are around 300 cherry trees here. It can be accessed within around 10 minutes from the Ichinomiya-Misaka IC on the Chuo Expressway, or around 20 minutes by taxi from the Isawa-Onsen Station on the JR Chuo Line.

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.
