If you see the advertisements for Shibazakura festival--they are a bit exaggerated. I suspect the photos have been enhanced. We arrived late April, and the gardens were not in full bloom yet. The layout is pleasing, and in full bloom it probably is very relaxing....More

Information saying that baby cheery blossoms from mid April. But it depended on weather. We went there in mid April, a bit cool in 2017, baby cheery yet to blossom.

Best visited in the month of May, with the pink moss in full bloom, the Hitsujiyama Park is a sight to behold. It is accessible from the Yokose Railway station on the Seibu Chichibu Line and takes about 20 minutes to reach the park. It...More

Took as day trip to Chichibu. Missed the express train so arrived relatively late. The trick is to buy the express train tickets ahead of time. Ended up taking the non express train which took about an hour more but cost a fraction of the...More

車は渋滞するので、電車がおすすめです。東京からのバスはありません。電車は西武鉄道だったら池袋から1本。JRだと熊谷駅までいって、そこから私鉄の秩父鉄道ですが西武鉄道より時間がかかります。 西武鉄道の特急列車が良いと思います!
