Kogesawa Plum Grove: Up to 1,400 plum trees
Ura-Takao is famous for its plum blossoms, and the “Takao Baigo Plum Festival” held at the beginning of March each year. The pink and white plum blossoms are a breathtaking sight.
Kogesawa Plum Grove is near the “Oshita” bus stop. From Takao Station, take a bus bound for “Kobotoke”.
From there, there is a tunnel on the Chuo Main Line near the bus stop, you can reach the groove by following the path next to the tunnel.
There is also a parking lot, but the road around here is very narrow, so it is recommended to use the bus from Takao Station’s north exit headed for “Kobotoke”.

Specifically March 9 (Sat) to March 24 (Sun) from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm in 2019.
