The Kawazu-zakura cherry blossoms have become famous as some of the earliest-blooming cherry blossoms in Tokyo's outlying areas.
(Typically, cherry trees bloom in Tokyo between late March and early April.)
The outstanding characteristics of Kawazu-zakura are its large petals and the bright pink color. There are 8,000 cherry trees in Kawazu. "The Kawazu-zakura Cherry Blossom Festival" is held during the blooming season and visited by a million of Japanese and foreign tourists.
In addition, "Kawazu" is also famous for being a flower growing town for flowers other than the cherry. The "Iris" has been designated as the flower of the town, and we are proud to be the largest exporter of Irises in the Kanto area.
There are facilities where you can enjoy the gentle aroma and brilliant colors of carnations. The "Kawazu Bagatelle Park" is the sister park of the Bagatelle Park in Paris, where you can enjoy viewing various flowers which are rare in Japan, in the setting of a French style garden.
