Between JR Takao Station and the Kobotoke Pass, you can enjoy seeing vibrant red and white blossoms on more than 10,000 plum trees spanning four groves. There will be stalls selling refreshments and products made from plums—including jams, pickles, and sake. You can also get acquainted with traditional Japanese culture through a koto performance and a tea ceremony. Get a commemorative stamp at each of the four plum groves, and you can enter a raffle to win special prizes.
Be sure to visit the newly opened Surusashi Grove, which is next to the Yu-no-Hana Grove. You can also enjoy a walking trail that takes you past the 1,400 plum trees at Kinoshitazawa Plum Grove.
