Cherry Blossoms

Japan’s Top 100 Blossoms: Mobara Park (Chiba)


Mobara Park, with 2,850 somei yoshino and other cherry trees, was built utilizing the hills, pond, and other features of the natural terrain. Many hanami lovers flock to the park during the cherry blossom festival each year, when the sakuras around the large pond are in full bloom.

The sakura festival features a range of events, from wadaiko performances and pop concerts to a bazaar and flea market. The sakuras take on a dreamlike quality when they are lit up at night. Incidentally, the park is adjacent to the exclusive Mobara Country Club, where US President Donald Trump played golf with Prime Minister Abe Shinzō in May 2019.
