Quick Report of Cherry Blossom Status in Tokyo

The cherry blossoms this year is probably the prettiest I’ve seen. Perhaps it is because of the warmer weather. Since it’s spring vacation, I decided to make the most out of it by visiting these top Cherry Blossoms spots around Tokyo.

Yanaka District

Cherry Blossoms in Yanaka District

Yanaka District was my first stop on my Cherry Blossom Tour. I started from the Yanaka Graveyard and unlike its nearby Cherry Blossom spot, Ueno Park, this place is less crowded and more relaxed.

Rikugien Garden

Cherry Blossoms in Rikugien Garden

Perhaps the most crowded place in my tours. Rikugien Garden is popular because of its Weeping Cherry Blossom. It took me an hour to explore the entire garden. Going around was tiring but it was beautiful.

Koishikawa Korakuen Garden

I don’t understand why people would wrestle in Rikugien Garden when there are also weeping Cherry Blossom trees here in Koishikawa Korakuen Garde, which was less crowded.

Yasukuni Shrine

Cherry Blossoms in Yasukuni Shrine

The Yasukuni Shrine turned out to be my favorite place in the tour. To the south of the shrine is the Chidorigafuchi Park, where I originally planned to go, however, it was jam-packed! This is why I decided to see the Yasukuni Shrine and was very happy that I did. It was very beautiful and less crowded.
