Hanami-yama

A magnificent flower-filled mountain that local farmers have developed through the years. Hanamiyama was opened to the public in 1959 due to a desire for more people to see the mountain’s beautiful array of flowers. In Spring, the mountain features plum, cherry, and Forsythia blossoms, as well as numerous other varieties of flowers. At full bloom, the flowers paint the mountain in a gentle shade of pink, creating a surreal, fantasia atmosphere. On a clear day in early Spring, you can see the distant snow-crested mountains silhouette across the blue sky. A truly lovely landscape.
