Nihonbashi Sakura Festival: A Digital Gourmet Wonderland

Free

If looking at real trees is not, for some reason, your sort of thing, head into central Tokyo’s Nihonbashi district for a packed, eclectic sakura experience. Although the area isn’t quite as packed with cherry trees as some other parts of town, it more than makes up for this by the astonishing variety of cherry blossom-themed installations.

Major local landmarks the Mitsui Building and Coredo Muromachi are illuminated at night, while the street leading to Fukutoku Shrine features an audio-visual digital cherry avenue. There are also food stalls featuring gourmet snacks of all kinds, art exhibitions, and music. And, rumor has it, there’s also a treasure-hunt…

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