Great hikes, beautiful scenery. Plenty of photo opportunities. Hiking in the summer can be a bit sweatier than usual. The high humidity is oppressive. Best to visit early in the morning before the heat gets too much.

Wish I could visit every Spring.. Painters and photographers visit here from all of Japan. Hard to believe its admission free. The honor wants us to enjoy the beauty of nature. What a sincerity..

Although this is my forth park visit on this trip (this is also my first time to Japan!!), but I am still hooked on visitor g more parks. Main because I really am just as crazy as others in chasing then blooms! Wanted to view the 1,000 cherry tree (in Miharu) but I went to the wrong park in Fukushima.... More

Literally the best cherry blossoms I saw on the entirety of Japan. The entire place was amazingly beautiful, and very magical. There's not much more to say, you have to see if for yourself.

Hiked up to Hanamiyama Park in January from Funabacho. Crews busy pruning the peach orchards with heavy snow on the ground. Walking up from the river can be difficult given the narrow space for walking alongside the roads leading up to the park. Recommend walking the smaller streets up to the park. View from above the orchards is worth the... More

Free, beautiful flower park that's great for a spring stroll. Lots of different varieties, though of course it's popular during sakura season.

Disclaimer: I'm a US citizen living in Fukushima since 2008, and imagine spending the rest of my career, even the rest of my life, here. So, maybe I'm biased. Hanamiyama (花見山、flower-viewing-mountain) is just a short ride from Fukushima Station on special buses that are arranged during peak cherry-blossom season. The people of Fukushima take good care of this attraction, and... More

We could only travel to Tokyo from 11 April and were worried when we read reports of an early blooming of the cherry blossom this year due to the warmth and rains. Checking the Sakura forecast, we made plans to chase the flowers as they bloomed using the JR pass that we have purchased beforehand through JTB in Singapore. Upon... More

One of the very best spots in Japan for plum and cherry blossom in early to mid April. Shuttle bus runs every thirty minutes during daytime in the peak season. This is a free private land of garden farmers opened to the general public by generosity, so do take note that no drink partying and all rubbish must be taken... More

The hill was covered with hundreds of thousands of flowers. Incredible. Everything was perfect. I can not forget this place.
