Fuji Shibazakura Festival

I seen pink moss pictures on my Facebook several times and would love to see it. Fuji Shibazakura Festival starts from mid April to end of May and I happen to be in Hakone! So even it is a distance from my hotel, I decided to go there. Twin E loves nature e.g birds, flowers, etc. So she definitely would enjoy the view too.

After 2 hours drive, we finally reach there and surprisingly we were not charged of entrance fee. We were informed that the entrance fee is waived and they directed us to the car park. Happily we parked our car, and headed to the festival. We walked about 10mins to the "lake" (we find it is the size of a pond) with bared Sakura trees surrounding us. Sadly the pink moss and tulips are not fully bloomed yet. End up what we see is as below :-


Very big different right! No wonder they waived off the entrance fee. But at least we have a perfect mount fuji view. The food festival is great too. We love the food and there is performance too! Twin E enjoyed looking at the tiny limited pink moss, poppy flowers and lavenders. As long as there is some nature around her, she is fine especially with the cool weather.
