Cherry Blossoms-Sakura

Sunpu Park


We all love Cherry blossoms, Sakura. You can only see them in spring. The best season is supposed to be the beginning of April, but it  really depends on the climate. Every year, the best timing can be different, but mostly around the beginning of April.

Our climate in Shizuoka is really nice and warm during this time of the year. In 2016, for example, the best beautiful Sakura were seen in the 1st and the 2nd week of April. I can’t really guarantee you when to come for the best Sakura. It’s mother nature thing, so just come in spring and see if you are lucky enough or not!

In other words, we know that spring has come when the cherry blossoms bloom. April is the time of entrance into schools or companies. So Sakura can be considered as a symbol of “new start”.

Sunpu Park
Sakura can be seen in many places in town. But especially around the moat. They even look more beautiful with those historical back ground. (stone walls.)


See, many people are enjoying the Sakura, but mostly beer and foods! If you are going to do “Hanami“, cherry blossom viewing picnic, then, “Sunpu park” is the best place you should to go.   See info of Sunpu castle for its location.
