Park

Here at Hitsujiyama Park you can see Chichibu’s iconic spring scenery, hills covered in moss plox, or shiba-zakura. The park features around 400,000 moss phlox plants of 9 varieties across its 17,600㎡ area, and from early April to early May the park is covered in a carpet of pink and white flowers.

The “Chichibu Night Festival” has been registered as an Intangible Cultural Property by UNESCO, and the outfits worn by the performers that take the stage during the festival are themed after the moss phlox flowers.

At the “petting pasture,” guests can meet and touch sheep (hitsuji in Japanese, and part of the park’s namesake).
“Miharashi no Oka,” or “Lookout Hill,” offers a view of both Chichibu as well as its mountain range, and it’s often visited by fans of anime in which the hill has been used as a backdrop.
