Left Tokyo 7:30am arrive at 1:40pm, super jam.
The Shibazakura Festival left a little to be desired (I think the flowers were starting to come back in after the April blooming), although the food and goodie shopping was good/unique. Getting there was . . . interesting. The bus does take you directly to the site, but it makes a lot of stops and takes a while to get there. I also don't think the map provided to find where the bus parks is super useful. I think it could be a bit clearer, because it's difficult to distinguish the bus terminal from where the city buses pick individuals up-- particularly so early in the morning.
Thank you so much Yuki for helping me get tickets to this awesome festival! The whole process was convenient since the tickets were delivered on time by the time I arrived in Tokyo and the instructions on how to get to the start point were very clear.There were multiple ways to get to the location, but the express bus tickets Yuki bought made the whole process much easier since that eliminated complicated transfers and I could just relax once I got on the bus. If you are in Japan during this time of year (mid-April to early June) I highly recommend checking this out!! The different-coloured moss looks amazing. And if you're lucky enough to see Mount Fuji in the distance, you've hit the jackpot! :D
Beautiful views of Mt. Fuji.
It was a very pleasant experience - but we did make one mistake - and that was allowing too much time for the trip. Initially I thought that two hours would be too short a time so we left on the early bus and had about 4 hours-too long. Since the event had very few areas to sit at we ended up getting very tired. Please let the event hosts know that it would be much nicer if they had more areas (in shaded areas) for people to sit. I observed one elderly man who got overly tired and just had to sit down, since there were no benches around, he tried to sit on some logs and actually fell. The food was very good-we ate a bit early to beat the crowds. We also ate a couple of snacks - all were good. The bus was very comfortable, driver get a good job and we were lucky that traffic was not backed up at all - but the best part is that we had great views of Mt. Fuji throughout the day!
It was very convenient and great service. Flawless
The bus taking you to the festival is just a line bus from Shinjuku, making several stops before eventually arriving, after 3+ hours to the festival. At the festival, the flowers were not blossomed (we went on the 21th of April) and the clouds prevented us from seeing Mt Fuji. The festival place is really small (takes about 15' to walk around) and the street food way below average.

It was a disaster ... only one miserable patch of field with the flowers was in full bloom. The rest of the fields were empty!
After talking to the locals, the actual event should only take place in mid May and we did not understand why the event was opened for booking as early as mid April!!
As tourists, we should be updated and the said event should be cancelled and replaced!!
Good tour! Good points : Lovely bus driver, on time, comfortable bus with wifi and toilet. We were lucky the weather was clear so we could see the fuji mountain really well and enjoy delicious cake on the sweets cafe terrasse with this beautiful view.
Bad point : were supposed to have a meeting time at 7:20 in bus station but nobody was there to meet us. But the bus gate was easy to find so it was ok. The tour included only shibazakura festival so we stayed there during 5 hours from 9:30 to 14:30. The problem is the venue is really small there is nothing to do except taking photo, eat cake and eat in average quality food trunk. It was getting rainy and cold and except one big tent cafeteria there were no place to stay warm. 2 hours would be more than enough or another program should be included
