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.

  • Passed though on 1st March 2020, sadly, due to the warm winter, all the Sakura trees had already turned green. Don’t visit in 2020 if you’re coming for Sakura viewing.

  • Great to have the sakura trees blooming again... it's soon getting warmer and winter is over! Kawazu is one of the earliest places to go to see this wonderful transformation. Can be crowded on weekends as people come by buses from afar!
  • Beautiful to walk along the river through the sakura avenue Day time and night views - both are breathtaking. With rapeseed blooms a bright sunny day gets even better! Due to Corona, less crowds than usual...which also meant local businesses are suffering. :( So, better to buy local Mikan/lemons and support local businesses. Yummy fresh Sakura mochi. On a good weather day, nice to picnic sitting on the river bed. Lots of sitting space (the river bed is rocky...) and chance to play in the water.
