Let’s use JAPAN RAIL PASS.Kumagaya City SAKURA Festival.

I’m Tomoemon.We have started again this time. Blogging in English Series.

We live in Kumagaya City, Saitama Prefecture, about an hour by train from Tokyo. Compared to Tokyo, Kyoto, Kamakura, and other tourist destinations, there are very few tourist attractions. It is my hometown, and I think it is very unfortunate.😢

However! Spring in Kumagaya is very amazing. It is transformed into a famous sightseeing spot that produces more wonderful “sakura” (cherry blossoms) than the famous “Shinjuku Gyoen” in Tokyo.

I would like to introduce “Cherry blossoms in Kumagaya City, Saitama Prefecture” where spring will be in full swing from now on.
