1 day for Korankei and Obara Shikizakura? 2019/7/31 15:06
Hello friends,

I am planning my autumn trip. Visiting Korankei and Obara Shikizakura in late Nov will be one of the highlights.

I am going from Nagoya station to Obara Shikizakura at first and hope to reach there before noon, go around for some hours, and take bus to Korankei. The traffic to Obara seems less busy than to Korankei, and Korankei has lighting up in the evening. That's reason I plan.

My question is: is it too packed for one day? After enjoying the lighting up in Korankei, I will take bus to go back to Nagoya. My feeling is that it will be better if I can stay one night in Korankei (?), but the hostel seems very limited in there.

How do you think about my plan? Any suggestion about the hostel?

Thanks for your support.

Thanks a lot, @Hirohiroboy.

Could you give me some advices about possible hostels/hotel close to Obara or Korankei? My feeling is that 2 hours in Obara is too short.

Thanks again.

I've been there last year during the season. Two hours in Obara is enough to enjoy viewing Shikizakura(Four Seasons Cherry Blossoms).
There is another bus from Obara-fureaikoen to Korankei departing at 16:00 for weekends only.
