Fuji Shibazakura Festival & Winery Tour


The Fuji Shibazakura Festival features over 800,000 Shibazakura flowers blooming simultaneously making this festival the biggest in the region. The vibrant pink color of the flowers is an incredible contrast to the surrounding lake and the towering, snow capped Mt Fuji back drop. Definitely one of the best photo opportunities in Japan! The festival also features outdoor entertainment and a large food court with great food and drinks from all over Japan.

After a fun morning at the festival we will continue on to the Katsunuma wine region. We will stop off at two wineries for a winery tour and wine tasting. We will finish up at a mountain-top winery with a huge wine cellar and an onsen with great views over the Kofu valley. Its going to be a fun day out in Yamanashi - hope that you can join us!

Trip Reviews

The Fuji shibazakura festival scenary is absolutly beautiful. The wine & juice free all-you-can-drink tasting is great. And I recommend you take the onsen option at the end, especially as it is partly outside and in a high place with a stunning view on the valley. Great trip leader, well-organized & fun trip!

We went to shibazakura and it was supposed to be rainy. The weather gods were with us and we are able to see Fuji clearly with the beautiful flowers and the lake. The onsen was amazing and the wineries were great. The second winery you paid ¥1500 to taste 180 wines and best part is you pour it yourself. I had a great time.
