Edo Fukagawa Sakura Festival

9:30am – 9:00pm
Free

One of the best opportunities to try a traditional Japanese cherry-blossom festival with all the trimmings, the Edo-Fukagawa matsuri offers illuminations, boat rides and plenty of food. The event takes place in the quiet neighborhood of Monzen-Nakacho with wasen boat rides offered on the nearby river. They cost ¥500 per person and you can register from 9.30am for a spot on a boat, and although registration is open until 2.30pm, we suggest getting there earlier as spots fill up fast. There are also motorboat rides during the day and evening for illumination-appreciation although these cost a bit more. There will be food stalls and entertainment as well as plenty of cherry blossom, so if you’re feeling traditional, this is the one for you!


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!
