桃の花 Peach Blossoms

The poor peach tree is often overshadowed by its more famous cousin, the cherry tree, but observing the peach blossoms in season is probably more delightful and less crowded. However, you may have to take a train to the city of Fuefuki in Yamanashi prefecture, about 2 hours west of Tokyo. We recommend Marukita Hanamomoen (Japanese only) where you can tour the orchards of peach blossoms before enjoying a relaxing cup of tea and sampling the peach related delicacies. Check the blog before you go to find out when blossoms are at their peak, which is only for about 2 weeks per year.
