Chiyoda Cherry Blossom Festival

Cancelled
Free

Held in Kitanomaru Park with its fabulous cherry trees, the Chiyoda cherry blossom festival is one of the most popular in Tokyo. The trees are illuminated at night and you can take a rowing boat out onto the moat of the ancient Edo castle. The boating hours are even extended into the evening during the festival so you can enjoy both at once. There are food stalls and plenty of opportunities to try some of the seasonal foods and traditional festival staples.


When does cherry blossom start in Tokyo?

For 2019, the Japan Weather Association’s forecast for Tokyo puts first bloom at the 22nd of March, with the best viewing times to be around April 3rd. For all the blossoms, see our Best Cherry Blossoms Spots in Tokyo Mega Guide, for late-night views check out our guide to Yozakura events and for elsewhere in Japan check our forecast!
