How to Experience Cherry Blossom Season in Tokyo
By Viator, March 2018
- Shinjuku Gyoen, a large park with a pond in the middle, is a popular place for hanami—the Japanese tradition of enjoying a picnic under the trees—especially during cherry blossom season.
- Chidorigafuchi, a moat on the northwest side of Tokyo's Imperial Palace, is a less crowded spot loved by locals. Although it's not the best choice for a picnic, you can rent a boat and float down the waterway framed by branches covered in blossoms.
- Sumida Park offers a unique view, as the bright flowers pop against the Tokyo Skytree tower in the background. Visit the riverside park after dark to see the trees illuminated by lanterns.
