What you'll do

During the cherry blossom season, Yokohama transforms into something from a fairytale. Seaside promenades become blanketed in petals as thousands of sakura trees burst into bloom and the promise of new beginnings is breathed into the city, as locals celebrate at hanami (cherry blossom viewing) parties. You might lay out a picnic of exciting snacks from an unassuming konbini convenience store on the lawns of Negishi Forest Park, or maybe you’ll join the crowds at stunning Sankeien, a tranquil Japanese-style garden that houses several historical buildings from across Japan and 300 trees. Or, if you’re keen to move away from the busy city center, over 1000 trees await a train ride away at Mitsuike Park, one of Japan’s top hanami locations.

Where you’ll go

In early April, when Japan’s iconic cherry blossoms are blooming and the country is covered in pastel pink confetti, you’ll experience the indescribable magic of Japan’s most festive but fleeting time of year. Your host will lead you down sakura-lined streets to some of central Yokohama’s top cherry blossom spots – and you’ll certainly have your pick of pink, hanami picnic-filled parks. From strolling along Yokohama’s waterfront on the cherry blossom-flanked Kishamichi promenade, sakura-flavored ice-cream in hand, to boating down the blossom-blanketed Ōoka River 10 minutes away (and celebrating with locals at the riverside festival) you’ll experience all the beautiful traditions that define this blissful time of year.
