Fuji Shibazakura (Pink Moss) Festival
The Fuji Shibazakura Festival is widely known as a signature event of Mt. Fuji. Shibazakura, literally lawn cherry blossom, is a small plant with pink flowers. Approx. 8 hundred thousand Shibazakura plants fill a 2.4 hectare area in the middle of the wilderness of Mt. Fuji. They have spread out and grown bigger in the last four years, and will be spreading out a brilliant colorful carpet again this year.
You can enjoy the forest full of fresh green leaves, blue sky and Mt. Fuji. The contrast of the vivid hues of nature will be a world of color from spring to early summer.
