Sakura no Satoさくらの里

Place famous for cherry blossoms

A 40 thousand square meter park located at the foot of Mt. Omuro in Ito City, Shizuoka Prefecture. Some 40 varieties of cherry trees are planted on the park’s spacious grounds. In front of majestic Mt. Omuro, they bloom one after the next in succession each year—jugatsu-zakura to start in mid-September, followed by kan-zakura, Ito-zakura, somei Yoshino, shidare-zakura, and finally Sanokiku in May. The Sakura Museum on the park grounds introduces the cherry varieties planted in the park and exhibits photos of famous cherry blossom viewing locations and cherry trees from around the country. The Sakura no Sato Festival is held in early April at the height of cherry blossom season, and during this time the park bustles with great throngs of visitors come to hold traditional cherry blossom viewing parties.

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
