Another very famous spot for sakura viewing around Mt. Fuji is the Shinnasho river near Oshino Hakkai that offers stunning views of cherry blossoms, Mt.Fuji and the river. There is also a cute, little bridge 'daimon-bashi', on the river, that offers lovely views of the sakura. This place is hugely popular among photographers.
I visited Fuji in mid-April when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. I stayed at Hotel Mystays Fuji Onsen Resort and with the help of a tour guide, checked out the best spots for 'sakura' or cherry blossom viewing with Mount Fuji in the background.
When I came here, the place was flooded with photographers and tourists, all taking pictures of the stunning landscape before them. It is located near Shibokusa Sengen Shrine on ROUTE 717(Prefectural road).
