Kawazuzakura near Tokyo 2019/2/26 01:31
Ifll be in Tokyo from 04 Mar 2019. My original plan was to see kawazuzakura in Kawazu; however, it seems that flowers would be gone when I reach there (given a whole rainy week this week). Please advise if therefs any other festival location around Tokyo (with kawazuzakura type of sakura) so that I can enjoy. I have little hope that other locations will have better weather conditions than Kawazu and flowers may last longer (maybe). Many thanks.

Hi!

It's not Kawazuzakura, but if you're looking for an amazing flower festival near Tokyo around March 4, I would highly recommend going to Kairakuen in Mito to see the ume.

I've been to Kairakuen for the ume and it is spectacular.

Hi!

You should be right on time. As of today the Kairakuen website says it's at 43%, so by the 4th it should be relatively peak!

I loved Kairakuen when I went 3/15 in 2009. The sakura was relatively early that year too but the ume were still lovely in Mito.

I hope you enjoy the experience as much as I did!
