Landmark · Tourist Spot
Marvel at the weightless clouds of cherry blossoms at Kawazu Zakura (Kawazucho). A soft pink hue of 8,000 trees stretches for 4 km (2.5 mi) along the banks of the Kawazu River. Every year a festival takes place, drawing scores of visitors to witness the flowering. The festival opens in early February and lasts till March. Expect to see many stalls operating during this time, selling a vast array of dried food, freshly cooked dishes, citrus fruits, souvenirs, and even small cherry blossom trees that you can take with you. In the evenings a light display illuminates the scene. Take the guesswork out of planning a Kawazu-cho vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Stayed in this Hotel in 2018, had a wonderful experience! Food was so tasty, special hot spring set in the boat, cherry blossoms were so amazing!
