Shiba-Zakura(Polster-Phlox) in Chichibu

There are still a lot of beautiful place in Japan that foreign tourists don’t know.
Saitama next to Tokyo is one of them.
There are several attractive places in Saitama.

If you like nature, I recommend Chichibu to you.
There are mountains for hiking and rivers for rafting.
And if you like flowers, I would recommend Chichibu to you.

In the end of April, there is a very beautiful flower garden.
The flowers are Shiba-Zakura(Polster-Phlox)
They are like a carpet of colorful flowers.
Japanese flowers are not just cherry blossoms.
