Yugawara Plum Grove

Feb 19, 2017

Everyone's heard of Sakura season in Japan, but there's a little known other flower that blooms slightly earlier than Sakuras and that little known flower is none other than the Plum blossom which blooms in early spring!

Plum blossoms are also known as a marker for the beginning of spring, so instead of squeezing with crowds of people to view Sakura, why not take the route less travelled and take the opportunity to peacefully enjoy Plum blossoms in Yugawara's Plum Grove?

Yugawara is situated in Kanagawa Prefecture. Getting to Yugawara Plum Grove is slightly less convenient than getting to big cities like Tokyo and Osaka, but it's still relatively easy as it's well connected by trains (albeit local trains only).

From Yugawara station, take a bus headed for Kajiya and get off at Morishita Koen Mae bus stop. From there it's a short walk to the Plum Grove. The best season for Plum blossom viewing is the first two weeks of March. Have fun!
