10 Best Events in Tokyo in March 2024

List of Seasonal Events in Tokyo in March

Tokyo Tower and Cherry Blossoms

Tokyo in March is one of the busiest times of the year for international visitors. Winter is officially over and outdoor events will start to increase as the temperature will also increase. Spring is here and with it, all the colorful flowers will start to bloom, welcoming a new season.

Cherry blossoms are the main reason people come to visit Japan during this month, and Tokyo has so many popular spots for these blossom viewings. Hanami is done in various parks across the city, and there are even boat rides you can take to appreciate the Sakura from different perspectives. Events will be held as well with Sakura-themed food and sweets being found in many restaurant cafe menus.

March is also when traditional Japanese events such as Hinamatsuri (ひな祭り) and Shunbun no Hi (春分の日) take place. Hinamatsuri is “Girl’s Day” in Japan and it is celebrated on the 3rd. Shunbun no Hi is the “Vernal Equinox Day” in Japan and it is celebrated in Japan on the 21st.

In this article, I will share with you our picks for the 10 best events in Tokyo in March 2024. I’m including events from different genres as well as locations throughout the City.

Born and raised in Costa Rica, I started living in Tokyo from college. I love traveling within Japan & around the world. Since I wasn’t born in Japan, I know the cultural impact that you can get when visiting Japan for the first time and what you might be worried about before your trip. And I’ve lived long enough to somewhat understand the nuances of the Japanese culture that make this country such an attractive place to visit. Hopefully I can provide to you both the information you’re looking for and the information you didn’t know you needed to know.
