Recommended Add-On during a Cherry Blossom Japan Tour.
The Lake Kawaguchi Cherry Blossom Festival, also known as the Fujikawaguchiko Cherry Blossom Festival, is an annual cherry blossom viewing festival held at Lake Kawaguchi (Kawaguchi-ko), Yamanashi near the famous Mt. Fuji. This admission free event attracts large groups of local Japanese people and tourists who gather to view beautiful cherry blossoms at their peak bloom.
During the spring season, Lake Kawaguchi is surrounded by approximately 300 Yoshino Sakura trees. The combination of the dazzling pink cherry blossoms, the clear water of Lake Kawaguchi, and the iconic Mt. Fuji in the background creates a serene scenery you won't want to miss.
The Lake Kawaguchi Cherry Blossom Festival is considered one of the best cherry blossom viewing festivals in all of Japan for good reason. Not only are beautiful sakura blossoms dancing in the sky, other Japanese flowers are also in bloom during the cherry blossom season for an extra vibrant atmosphere. The fresh smell of sakura and flowers is only complimented by local yatai vendors selling mouth-watering food, drinks, desserts, and snacks. Local tourists and travelers from all over Japan come to Lake Kawaguchi to enjoy the perfect trio of beautiful cherry blossoms, scenery, and delicious food during this sakura matsuri.
