Bokutei Cherry Blossom Festival

A short, breezy walk from the Tokyo Skytree is Sumida Park, home to not one but two of Tokyo’s best cherry blossom festivals, the Sumida Park Sakura-matsuri and the Bokutei Sakura-matsuri. The Bokutei centers around the park’s kilometer-long line of cherry trees, and features night illuminations and festival stalls. Since the flowers stretch for such a long way, be sure to wear your good shoes and be prepared for a little bit of night chill to get the most out of your nocturnal hanami.

For all the blossoms, see our Best Cherry Blossoms Spots in Tokyo Mega Guide.
