Hitsujiyama Park, Chichibu

#1 of 141 in Parks in Saitama Prefecture
Nature / Park
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. To visit Hitsujiyama Park and other attractions in Chichibu, use our Chichibu itinerary builder.

  • 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.
  • been here for my ano hana tour. Wish I visited the place during spring!
  • 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.
  • This place is very near to Tokyo, visit here to enjoy beauty of shibazakura

Where to stay in Chichibu

Known as something of a resort town, Chichibu offers a large set of accommodations for a city of its size. 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. Many make it just a day trip to Chichibu, however, traveling from Tokyo in under two hours by car or train.
