Musenyama Sakura Festival | INA TOWN

March 23, 2019 @ 08:00 April 7, 2019 @ 17:00

Musenyama, also known as the KDDI Forest, is a greenery trust in Ina Town. There are approximately 100 large sized (roughly 10 metres tall) cherry blossom trees, all about 70 years old.

The 2019 cherry blossom period in Musenyama is from Saturday March 23rd until Sunday April 7th from 10 am to 8 pm on dry days. The cherry blossoms are lit up at night from 6 pm. The festival and the light up are not on when it is raining.

During the period you can picnic under the trees. There are two days within this period when there is a proper full on festival with food stalls and live entertainment. This year, 2019, those dates are March 30th and 31st.
