Mt. Awagatake (粟ヶ岳)

Event

Mt. Awagatake in Kakegawa City, Shizuoka Prefecture is a mountain with an elevation of 532 meters, and a well-known cherry blossom viewing site where Yoshino cherries, Sato-zakura cherries and hill cherries bloom in riotous profusion in spring. From Sancho Park, you can enjoy picturesque scenery overlooking tea fields spreading over the foothills, Oi River, Suruga Bay, the Southern Alps (Akaishi Mountains) and Mt. Fuji. At Awawa-jinja Shrine built near the peak, there is a Sakura Festival during cherry blossom season. It is a place where you can feel free to walk gazing at the rows of beautiful cherry blossoms on the trails. Parking is available on site. The rest area on the peak is open from 9:00 to 16:00.

          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.
