Kawazu Izu – Cherry Blossom and the River
Continuing on my search for cherry blossom, during my trip to Izu I was also in Kawazu. Kawazu is not as spectacular as Minamiizucho (click here to see my previous blog) but it still quite beautiful. It is also very convenient to get to Kawazu. There is a direct train from Tokyo station to Kawazu and the entire journey takes about 2 hours-ish. The place to see sakura in Kawazu is just 5 minutes walk from the station. It is a big river with sakura trees on both sides of the embankments. There are also lights to view sakura at night here.
