Cherry blossoms at the base of Mt. Fuji

A cemetery may at first seem an odd place for cherry blossom viewing, but given the flower's connection in Japanese culture with the impermanence of life, perhaps it is the ideal spot.

Quick Facts

Home to thousands of cherry and plum trees

The park extends over two million square meters

How to Get There

Buses run from JR Gotemba Station (30 minutes) and JR Suruga-Oyama Station (20 minutes).

A bus service from Shinjuku Station is also available and takes two hours.

Crowds

Tens of thousands of people come to see the blossoms every year, and it's easy to see why, with the vibrant pinks and whites standing in vivid contrast against the sharp sides of the still snow-covered Mt. Fuji. As a result, visitors are advised to use public transport rather than try to find a parking space.

Hanami

Despite the somber setting, cherry-blossom viewing or hanami parties are encouraged beneath the twin rows of trees. However, people are asked to behave respectfully, and so the usual hanami high jinks are to be avoided. Mid-April is considered to be the best time to visit, but check with forecasts in advance for more exact blooming dates.
