Yamanashi Fuji Shibazakura Festival | Fuji Shibazakura Festival

The Fuji Shibazakura Festival is a very popular festival held from mid April to early June that attracts tens of thousands of spectators who gather to see 800,000 shibazakura, or pink moss, around the Fuji Five Lakes area in Yamanashi. The bright pink petals are usually at their fullest bloom in May, but varies every year depending on the season. The field becomes covered in shades of pink, purple and white, and on a clear day you will even have a great backdrop of the iconic Mt. Fuji. Vendors sell pots of the shibazakura and pink moss as well as food and souvenirs to truly create a festive environment. The Shibazakura festival is considered one of the best times to visit the Yamanashi area, when all the usual tourist spots are enhanced with the colorful pink moss. If you're lucky and the cherry blossoms bloom late, the moss and cherry blossom petals together is a sight you won't want to miss.
