About the Spring Flower FestivalThe Fuji Shibasakura Festival takes place every year in Japan, at the foot of Mount Fuji, in the five lakes.
The focus of the festival is the huge carpets of the Shibasakura flowers, almost a million flowers, in carpets with impressive blossoms, white, pink and purple.
Hundreds of thousands of Shibasakura flowers cover each of the five parks around the impressive high mountain and there is nothing better that taking a walk around the big parks.
The peak blossoms of these flowers is in April-May. Then masses of tourists and residents of Japan come from far to the area, only to see the beauty spread out in front of them, with the great snow-capped Fuji Mountain in the background.
