Hanami cherry blossom viewing: a chance to reflect on the ephemeral nature of life or a good excuse for a party; whichever way you look at it, hanami in Ueno Park is something special since there are over 800 cherry trees.

Bring something to eat, drink, a ground-sheet to sit on and warm clothes for when the sun goes down. Expect crowds – which adds to the atmosphere – and have fun!

Naturally, the actual dates of this ‘festival’ very much depend on when Mother Nature allows the cherry blossoms to flower.
