Bokutei Cherry Blossom Festival

10:00am – 9:00pm

A short, breezy walk from the Tokyo Skytree is Sumida Park, home to the Bokutei Sakura Matsuri (Cherry Blossom Festival).

What happens?

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. Light up is from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
