The Mt. Tsukuba plum forest is located midway up the slop of Mt. Tsukuba (roughly 250m above sea level), and from here you can look down over a beautiful view of fields and gardens and the cityscape of the Science City, as well as Mt. Fuji and the skyscrapers of the big city in the distance.
Within the park there are white, pink, and yellow-stamen plum trees amounting to 1000 trees in total, as well as Tsukuba’s famous stones; the contrast between the stones and the pink and white plum blossoms makes for a gorgeous view.
During the Mt. Tsukuba Plum Festival you will catch sight of many people taking pictures.
