Sheepsan Park is a park near the city of Chichibu, and there are highlights such as "Moss phlox hill" where moss phlox blooms all over at the time around Golden Week.
Sheep mountain park where moss phlox blooms beautifully, but it is also a famous place for cherry blossoms.
A little before the time when moss phlox blooms, about 1,000 cherry trees such as Somei Yoshino, weeping cherry, and double cherry blossoms bloom in the park.
In addition to "Moss phlox hill", There is "Fureai Farm" where you can interact with sheep and "Overlook hill" overlooking chichibu town and mountains.
Moss phlox hill
Admission and parking in the park are usually free, but there is a charge when moss phlox blooms.
In 2021, there will be a fee from Friday, April 16 to Wednesday, May 5.

Parking lot of Sheep Mountain Park
If you go by car, it is crowded, such as a line of cars before entering the parking lot every year.
There are several parking lots in Yoriyama Park, and I do not know if it will be parked in the parking lot below, so I think that it is good to rely on signs and people in charge.
In addition, the parking lot of the park was charged when moss phlox bloomed, but it is convincing considering the number of cars and people.
