Cherry Blossom Viewing in Tokyo 東京の花見

cherry blossom flower

Japan is cherry blossom season now.
My family called me last night and talked about they enjoyed Hanami, cherry blossom viewing, in Tokyo.

I remember when I worked in Tokyo, I and co-workers enjoyed Hanami a lot in this season.
It’s beautiful memory in Japan.

I would like to introduce the best Hanami place in Tokyo.

Chidorigafuchi
Kudanshita Station, admission free 

Chidorigahuchi

Chidorigafuchi is the best spot for Hanami. When I went to there, I said a lot  ” Kirei!, Beautiful!” without thinking.
I heard others also said same word ” Kirei! ” many times.So you might say “Beautiful!” when you visit there!

“Hundreds of cherry trees decorate the moats of former Edo Castle around Kitanomaru Park, creating one of Tokyo’s most outstanding cherry blossom sights. Rowing boats are available for rent. Trees are lit up in the evenings.”

Shinjuku Gyoen
10 minute walk from Shinjuku Station, 200 yen, 9:00 to 16:30
Park

This place is good for picnic with family or friends. Japanese garden area is the best spot.
It’s easy to buy taking away food or lunch box around the park and bring it inside.

“Shinjuku Gyoen features more than one thousand cherry trees of over a dozen varieties, including numerous early and late blooming trees. There are spacious lawn areas, and the atmosphere is calm and peaceful. Thanks to the early and late blooming trees, Shinjuku Gyoen is a good hanami destination for those who miss the main season by a week or two.”

Ueno Park
A few steps from Ueno Station, admission free
Ueno Park

My family’s favourite place. This park is not only for hanami but also, many attractions around the place, museum, art museum, zoo or temple.

“One of Japan’s most crowded, noisy and popular spots for cherry blossom parties, Ueno Park features more than 1000 trees along the street leading towards the National Museum and around Shinobazu Pond. Ueno Park’s blossoms typically open 1-3 days ahead of the blossoms in other spots in the city.”
