Matsuda Cherry Blossom Festival

9:00am – 4:00pm
¥300 (on the door)

Around 360 kawazu-zakura trees cover the south side of Mt. Matsuda.

Note that the preliminary dates of February 3 to March 3 have been announced for the festival but these may change depending on blooming status.

What happens?

These cherry blossoms will be in full bloom in mid-February, earlier than almost anywhere else near Tokyo. To top it off you can enjoy a perfect and unique view of Mt. Fuji together with the blossoms! We expect the weekends will be the most eventful.

How to get there

There are two main ways of getting to the festival. First, take the Odakyu Line from Shinjuku Station to Shin-Matsuda Station (1 hour 15 minutes) and then walk 20 minutes to the park. Alternatively, take the Ueno-Tokyo Line from Tokyo Station and stay on till it turns into the Tōkaidō Line. Change at Kōzu Station for the Gotemba Line and get off at Matsuda Station (1.5 hours), then it is a 15-minute walk to the park.

Note: The festival dates are subject to change depending on the flowering situation.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
