I’ve just come back from “Kawazu Sakura Matsuri”, Kawazu-zakura Cherry Blossom Festival, which is being held until March 10. Telling the truth, I’m a little bit perplexed what to begin with because there were so many must-see points other than sakura cherry blossom that should be introduced first. Anyway, please open this map and copy it if necessary.
Now, I got off the train at Izukyu Kawazu Station ( 河津駅 ) and opened the map to find my way. As a result, I did not have to worry about how to get to the event site because sakura and food stalls led me there eventually soon after I got out of the station. In five minutes or so, I found a red bridge on the walkway along the Kawazu River.
I strolled toward the sea first to see what kind of beautiy i could find. It was a little windy that day and the wave was rather high. Now, I’m at the far-left side on the map. See ?
I walked on the left-side walkway of the river because there should be “Ashiyu” foot spa close from the bridge. There it was. It was very happy for me that the ashiyu was free. I went upstairs and looked around. Holly mackerel ! The view was splendid and the temperature of onsen hot spring was best ! I put my shoes and socks off to bathe my feet in it. Ten minute break !＾＾
I began to stroll again to the main site of the festival. On my way, I found hundreds of food stalls that sold souvenirs using sakura leaves, local oranges, green tea, and various B-class gourmets such as Fujinomiya Yakisoba and Mishima Croquette.
In 20 minutes or so, I got to the lawn square where another ashiyu was. I headed for it but……see the pic. There was no room for me.＞＜。。 Ok, maybe God was telling me not to take a rest there because I might miss the train or something.
I kept walking under the roof of sakura. Actually, it seemed like a tunnel of cherry blossom.
Now, see how much I walked so far from this PDF. I’ve written my route and ashiyu spots in the map so that you can follow my footstep. ＾＾
Next time, I’ll introduce the latter part of my story at Kawazu Sakura Matsuri.
Bye for now !＾＾
