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 yen 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!
