Tokyo events for Monday, March 25 to Sunday, March 31, 2024.

The latest cherry blossom forecast predicts that this week is full bloom (editor’s note: this seems to be delayed), so it’s the best time to take advantage of the ongoing sakura festivals.

Cherry blossoms aren’t the only flower to see at the start of spring; tulips are also taking a stand.

Exactly 333 colorful carp streamers will be hung around the iconic Tokyo Tower, making for vivid and eye-catching photos. You may ask, Why 333?

Spring Flowers at Showa Kinen Park

Tachikawa’s Showa Kinen Park has all kinds of flowers in bloom throughout spring, though it’s the tulips that tend to get the most attention. It’s a great place to visit if you feel like getting out of the city and stretching your legs, but don’t want to travel too far.
