From 2019 year, we decided to enter the cherry blossom festival administration cooperation money (adult 200 yen) and enter. You can have a pretty postcard (Matsuda Town flower) along with the receipt.

Since people are coming year by year, it seems that money is needed for the operation and management of the cherry blossom festival, such as expansion of temporary parking lot, vehicle guidance staff, guide staff.
Every year, if you can see beautiful cherry blossoms ahead, 200 yen is cheap.

The color of Kawazu cherry blossoms and rape blossoms makes us feel spring in ahead of time.

As you climb up the climbing staircase slowly, looking at the cherry blossoms and rape blossoms, the heart calms down very much.

Occasionally I saw that the plumage and bulbul bulbs are coming to cherry blossom nectar.

The cosplayers were also filmed with cherry blossoms back. You can shine after all.

The venue of the cherry blossom festival was originally called "Nishihira Uba Park" of the Fujimi 100 scenery in the Kanto area, and it is a place where children can enjoy enough, such as a roller slide, a mini SL, a kindergarten.

Especially, the weekend when I was nearly looking around is very crowded.

The parking lot (1,000 yen / car) on the hillside of Mt. Matsuda is always full (70 cars), and there is heavy traffic from the Shinjumonji Bridge over the Sakawa River. (I only get traffic at this time of the year ... (^^;)

※ When crowded, let's not go directly to Matsuda mountain, but aim for the temporary parking lot of the Sakugawa river bed (next to the new cross bridge (sea side) "cross bridge" from the bank of the riverbed) .

Also, from the Sakugawa riverbed, an extra shuttle bus (one way 150 yen) carries a piston to the venue.

Shuttle bus (one way: adult 150 yen, child 80 yen) connecting JR Matsuda station and Matsuda Yamanaka belly operates at 30 minute intervals.
