What you'll do

You’ll start off by joining a local host and stocking up on picnic essentials at a local depachika. These basement food halls of gleaming department stores are full of bento-style lunchboxes and sakura mochi, pink rice cakes wrapped in cherry leaves which are essential for any authentic hanami cherry blossom viewing experience! You’ll head to a popular spot like Yoyogi Park, a gorgeous garden near the Harajuku fashion district, or discover quieter spots favored by locals, like Inokashira Park in stylish Kichijoji, where you can admire the blossoms by day or by night. If things get a little crowded, hop on a boat and explore the Imperial Palace’s moat, or just sit down with a couple of locals. It’s that kind of a festival!

Where you’ll go

Celebrate Japan’s favorite time of the year in Tokyo’s most colorful parks, and take in the pink prettiness of cherry blossoms, or sakura, as they’re known here. Join a local host and take part in hanami, or cherry blossom viewing in popular public spaces like Shinjuku Gyo-en, a stunning garden in the heart of Tokyo’s financial district, or wander around the nearby Imperial Palace, where ancient architecture is accentuated by the bright blossoms. You could head south for the cherry tree-lined banks of the Meguro River, or your host might lead you to hidden gems like Koishikawa Botanical Garden, where cherry blossoms aren’t the only plants in bloom. Wherever you go, your host will be on hand to give you an authentic sakura experience!
