Hitsujiyama Park, Chichibu

3.8
#1 of 139 in Parks in Saitama Prefecture
Enjoy the vast spread of brightly colored flowers at Hitsujiyama Park. The layout may seem random, but with the full bloom, the flowers--which are actually a type of moss--create a stunning painting-like display. The backdrop to the park is provided by Mount Buko, which stands tall above the pink-and-white fields. For those looking for some outdoor activities, a tennis court within park grounds provides enough space to exercise and practice that drop shot. Visitors who prefer to relax with some food and drinks can drop by the onsite restaurant.

  • Sheep Mountain Park in Chichibu old cherry blossom, about 50 years ago, during the cherry blossom season was in the pond of boat hire. In recent years maintained, phlox garden, iris garden, and public toilets also offers free parking. Park in the free parking becomes paid Shiba Sakura season, Shiba Sakura season Saturday holidays and performances there ban vehicle traffic. Chichibu outside Phlox is made of is seen recently is crowded with Chichibu turf cherry blossom season. In front of the cherry blossom cherry blossoms are Shiba Sakura after irises, and other bright yellow azalea, winter cold cherry blossoms bloom. Sheep are kept from the past name of sheep mountain also over 40 years absence of sheep also in recent years, sheep also appear. Can walking trail is also available. There are also ground cherry, Shiba Sakura season hustle and bustle is gone, tennis and ball games can be. I use walks throughout the year. UPS and downs, you go around the Park 1 km-2 km, close enough to walk further to ease public toilets, you can walk. View from sheep mountain overlooks the city. Good eating your lunch on a bench in cherry blossom season, watching prospects? Is my garden, sheep mountain is a large shared garden.

  • When you come to Beijing, you can watch the beautiful cheese cherry at the flowering time. In addition to Mt. Fuji, the Cherry Festival has a rank father near Tokyo. From Ikebukuro to the Sivut Jihuo car, about 80 minutes to the rank of father, the export of the cherry tickets to purchase tickets, followed by instructions to go up the mountain, the line will be to the Yangshan Park. The whole mountain is full of deep superficial powder red cheese cherry, really beautiful, photographed near the Shi field, you can buy soil and fruit. Before the proposed trip, make sure the flowering period and early arriving to avoid the photo crowd.

  • Wonderful display of this fine ground cover plant!! Best to visit when their small flowers are in bloom.
  • The shibazakura moss phlox is stunning and the park has a lot to offer. But during peak season management is not able for the crowds resulting in parking tail backs , queues for everything and not enough seats in the eating area. Still worth the visit, but if you come by car factor in having to wait to get into a car park far away and get a (free) shuttle bus up to the park, then queue for about an hour to get out of the car park.
  • Unique place. Makes for stunning photos. Best to go early in the day.
  • A gorgeous park in Spring with the cherry blossom. It certainly is a walk to get there but it is worth it. Watch out to bring cash with you before you arrive at the train station.
  • been here for my ano hana tour. Wish I visited the place during spring!

Where to stay in Chichibu

In keeping with the town's traditional rural sensibility, the majority of the accommodations are ryokans with pleasant grounds, immaculate interiors, and, if you're lucky, a traditional onsen on site.
