Sakura cherry blossom is generally known as a Japan’s symbolic flower basically recognized as the one in spring, but Kawazu-zakura is not the common one. It opens up even in cold weather and established as one of the most precocious species of cherry blossoms that normally blooms in late-Jan – early-Mar. More wonderful with Nanohana rape blossoms ! Also enjoy a variety of local gourmets at food-stalls that are crammed with along Kawazu River !
Kawazu-zakura cherry blossom Festival is held between Feb 5 – Mar 10. Those who are coming by car, please prepare yourself for taking time in traffic. Trains are more recommended. For further information, please reach from here.

Hina-doll’s Festival is a Japan’s traditional event for girls on Mar 3. Generally, parents set up a display of Hina-dolls to celebrate their daughter’s growth and here in Higashi-izu Town, they have their own heritage culture. They make small figures by hand and suspend them in the rooms, wishing their daughter or grand-daughter to grow disciplined. Hina-no Tsurushi Kazari Festival is held between Jan 20 – Mar 31. Higashiizu Town is also well known as a landing port of Kinmedai alfonsino as well as Shimoda. I hope you enjoy it, too ! Details are available from here.
