Mt. Mifune is also called “Mt. Karafune” as it looks like an old Chinese ship. In the Mifunegaoka Plum Grove at the eastern foot of the mountain, 10,000 plum trees blossom from the middle of February to the beginning of March. During this period, the plum flower viewing festival is held, attracting many visitors. At the western foot of the mountain is located Mifuneyama Rakuen Amusement Park, where 5,000 cherry trees and 50,000 azaleas create magnificent scenery every spring.
