One of the Best Hanami Spots in Tokyo!

The Ueno Cherry Blossom Festival, or Sakura Matsuri, is one of the best spots to view the cherry blossoms in Tokyo. Held annually, the festival starts when the flowers first begin to bloom and last until the petals begin to fall. Many people, citizens and tourists alike, spend the day under the cherry blossoms enjoying the view, food, drinks, and overall atmosphere. At night, hundreds of cherry blossoms are illuminated by thousands of lanterns that are hung up among the trees to create a spectacular sight. Aside from viewing the cherry blossoms, there are also stalls set up in the park selling food, souvenir items, and popular festival games for family and friends to enjoy. While there are numerous Japanese flower festivals, the Ueno Cherry Blossom Festival continues to be one of Japan's most popular matsuri events.

If you wanted to see some extra cherry blossoms after your Japan tour ends it's day sight-seeing in Tokyo, visit the Ueno Cherry Blossom Festival to catch the beautiful cherry blossom illuminations before your day ends. You can always customize your vacation with Japan Deluxe Tour's pre or post stay options to add the Ueno Cherry Blossom Festival to your Cherry Blossom Japan Tour in March or April!
