Toshimaen Sakura Matsuri

10:00am – 8:00pm
¥500 – ¥1,000

This is one for the restless traveler. Hosted by the Toshimaen amusement park, the Toshimaen Sakura Matsuri is part of the nostalgia-soaked park’s “Sakura Nights” program, a celebration of the all-too-brief cherry blossom season. Illuminations splash pink and white over the five hundred cherry trees in the park, and if you ride one of the rollercoasters (like the Eagle), you’ll get a view of the blossoms that will be like nothing else in Japan.

Also, unlike most hanami spots, you can reserve a tatami picnic area–complete with Japan’s greatest cold-weather invention, the heated kotatsu–in advance, with the option of ordering food as well. Admission prices drop after 3pm, so take a jacket and/or someone to hug for warmth and head out for the evening. Admission-only tickets cost ¥500 while a regular Sakura Pass costs ¥1,600. You can also get a kids-rides-only ticket for ¥1,100.

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