Rikugien – Night Time Cherry Blossom Viewing

Tokyobling's Blog

During the last few days of the Tokyo Cherry Blossom viewing season I went to see the two huge cherry trees lit up at the famous Rikugien (六義園) in Tokyo’s Bunkyo ward. These kind of cherry trees are called shidarezakura, or weeping sakura, and the ones in this garden are particularly famous. Due to the early start of the cherry blossom season this year I think a lot of festivals and planned events came too late for the flower viewing, I hope everyone in Tokyo had the chance visit at least a few of the hanami parties this year. For next year’s visit to the gardens I will try to go both earlier in the season and earlier in the evening!
