Mount Fuji – Shibazakura Festival

Mount Fuji - Shibazakura Festival

Japan spring flowers are an explosion of colours and when Sakura season is over, the Shibazakura (Moss Phlox or Moss Pink) season reaches its peak, from mid April to about late May.
Shibazakura in Japanese literally means “cherry lawn” which refers to the pink carpet created by blooming moss phlox. The plant, native to North America is now cultivated at many places in Japan.
There are plenty of well renowned Shibazakura Matsuri (festival) in Japan, but the most popular Shibazakura festival is held near Lake Motosu at the foot of Mount Fuji, called “Fuji Shibazakura Matsuri” which boasts a total of over 700,000 shibazakura flowers, filling a 2.4 hectare area and spreading out like a brilliant pink carpet, with Mount Fuji in the background.
