Ueno Onshi Park (上野恩賜公園)

Ueno Park is one of the largest and most famous parks in Tokyo during the hanami. Many families go there throughout the year, but especially during the time of the hanami its popularity increases and it’s the preferred place for many Japanese. The main attraction is the nearly 1,000 trees along the main street until it reaches the Tokyo National Museum.

Another favorite spot is the Shinobazu pond. Here you can take pictures of the cherry trees on the pond, or rent a small boat to walk around the pond and take pictures from inside.

Shinjuku Gyoen (新宿御苑)

The Shinjuku Gyoen or Shinjuku National Garden, having an entrance fee of 500 yen, is less crowded than other parks such as Ueno or Yoyogi. It’s also a bit far from the center of Shinjuku and is harder to find for non-locals. However, it’s a good place to go and enjoy the cherry blossoms in spring. It has three types of gardens: Japanese, English and French gardens. Since it is very spacious, in spite of the fact that many people visit it, it does not get as overcrowded as those previously mentioned. There is more space and there are different places where you can enjoy the sakura.

Chidorigafuchi (千鳥ヶ淵)

Hundreds of cherry trees decorate the moats of the ancient Edo Castle around the Kitanomaru Park, resulting in one of the most precious images of Tokyo in spring. Boats are available for rent, but picnics are not allowed on the lawn. Visitors can go to the nearby Yasukini shrine, with a thousand of other cherry trees. Also during these days they put food stands in the shrine. At night, the cherry trees surrounding the river light up turning the views even more beautiful.

From Barcelona to Tokyo. Coffee & Adventure lover🌏☕️ 

I started to like Japan because of the anime, music and doramas, but after my first trip to the country I found what I love the most: traveling around, the culture and history. I have travelled a lot in Japan, but I still have many places to discover that I want to share with you🙋🏼‍♀️ Let’s discover Japan together!


Also, as a foreigner living in Japan for over 6 years I understand what kind of things are difficult when you move here and I want to help other people in the same situation that I have in the past.
