Hanami Picnics Across The City

This week Tokyo is heading towards peak blooming season, the sakura around the city is saturating the parks with beautiful shades of pink.

Keep in mind that picnic and gatherings are discouraged, but not walks under the wonderful sakura trees! Don’t forget to participate in our #SavvySakura2020 photo contest! (See Link)

Magical Sakura

Sakura Festival Nihonbashi

Nihonbashi has a mission to become the capital’s coolest sakura viewing venue and, we must say, it’s getting quite close. This festival features a series of sakura-themed events: from projection mapping, light-up, sakura-special food and drink menus and more! A must-see is the Nihonbashi Sakura Gate—a magical entry to the area, which has the entire street turned into a sakura-filled river, with a sky of countless sakura-colored strips of paper. As a measure against coronavirus, some events might get canceled, please check their website for more information.
