Early-blooming Cherry Blossoms
Kawazu sakura (or kawazuzakura) are a special type of cherry blossom (sakura) that blooms earlier than spring. This type of cherry blossom which was discovered in the coastal city of Kawazu has larger and brighter pink petals. These vibrant flowers bloom for around one month—double the blooming period of other sakura plants such as the more popular Yoshino cherry blossoms.

Matsuda Cherry Blossom Festival
The south side of Mt. Matsuda is host to around 360 kawazu sakura trees. The close proximity to Tokyo (around 1 hour) and gorgeous view of Mt. Fuji framed by cherry blossoms make the annual Matsuda Cherry Blossom Festival a beautiful choice for those who want to see early-blooming cherry blossoms from Tokyo. Bright sunny yellow nanohana (rapeseed flowers) add to the already stunning views at the festival.

When is the best time to see early cherry blossoms?
Mid-February to early March is usually the best time to see fully-bloomed kawazu sakura. However, there are reports of blooming as early as in January this year, so it is recommended to visit early.
