Ueno Cherry Blossom Festival

Free

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.

When does cherry blossom season start in Tokyo?

For 2020, the Japan Weather Association’s forecast for Tokyo puts first bloom at the 18th of March, with the best viewing times to be around April 36th. 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!
