Kawazu-zakura, the particular variety of sakura that proliferates around Miura-kaigan on the Kanagawa Prefecture coast, flower earlier than most other varieties of cherry, so they should be in full bloom in late February. More than 1,000 Kawazu-sakura line the road from Miura-kaigan station to Komatsugaike Park. Note: The festival dates are subject to change depending on the flowering situation. February 5 is the official start date of the festival but check here for a live feed of the current blooming status. How to get there The cherry blossom festival has easy access via train on the Keikyu Line. It's only a 10-minute walk from Miurakaigan Station and costs from Shimbashi Station, taking around 1.5 hours. Cheapo tip: Get a Keikyu discount ticket and explore more of the peninsula for less.
