Miura Kaigan Cherry Blossom Festival
The Miura Kaigan Sakura Festival is held along the railroad from Miurakaigan Station to Komatsugaike Park from the middle of February to the middle of March. There are approximately 1000 kawazu-zakura trees planted along the railroad. Kawazu-zakura cherry blossoms are known to bloom early and have large pink flowers. Flowers also bloom at the same time so you can enjoy the beautiful colorful scenery. At the tents in front of the station, local products such as fresh vegetables are sold.
For a scenic view, stand on the overpass near Miurakaigan Station where you can observe the cherry blossoms and passing trains from above. The juxtaposition of the red trains against the soft pink flowers is a coveted view. Trains run fairly frequently, so you will have many opportunities to snap the perfect shot.
Miura Kaigan Cherry Blossom Festival at night
During the cherry blossom festival, enjoy the fantastic illuminated night cherry blossoms that emit a different atmosphere from daytime. In particular, the 1km illumination along the railroad track that runs from the station to Komatsugaike Park is spectacular. Please check the Miura City website for details on the light-up.
