The Fujimi Kotoku Park is a secret spot for viewing cherry trees with Mt. Fuji views in Fujiyoshida. It is off the beaten track and tourists may not know about this place. The park also has a shrine and a recreational walking trail. It is a 15 minutes walk from Yoshiike-onsen-mae Station, and 30 minutes from Shimoyoshida Station. Since the place can be a bit hard to find, you might want to come here with a local guide. Also, since the parking space is limited, you might want to walk here from the train station. I drove here with a Japanese photo tour guide who also spoke good English. 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
