When I got to there my first impression actually was " Totally different from the brochure! " The place is very tiny. Flowers are not as colorful as the pictures. Messy also. There're lots of nice places other than here. Please don't waste your time......More

I went during the last week of April, on a weekend just before the golden week and it was exceptionally beautiful. From Ikebukuro, direct train goes to Seibu-Chichibu station and the journey is around 1 hour and 40 minutes. You can save a bit of...More

Information saying that baby cheery blossoms from mid April. But it depended on weather. We went there in mid April, a bit cool in 2017, baby cheery yet to blossom.

Whenever we visited Japan in springtime, we would try to spare the morning session to take the direct express train from Ikekukuro to Hitsujiyama Park and spend at least three hours there to see the beautiful shibazakura and took pictures around the park. There were...More

A bit hard to reach by public transport, but that is all of its drawbacks. Near the end of April, it was beautiful, almost the same condition as in the promoting pictures. If you are late for the sakura blossom, it can be a nice...More

車は渋滞するので、電車がおすすめです。東京からのバスはありません。電車は西武鉄道だったら池袋から1本。JRだと熊谷駅までいって、そこから私鉄の秩父鉄道ですが西武鉄道より時間がかかります。 西武鉄道の特急列車が良いと思います!
