You don’t need to travel outside of Tokyo to grab a little slice of the Netherlands. You can see rows upon rows of tulips with a windmill backdrop right in Ukima Park.
There will be more than 20,000 tulips, as well as cherry blossoms, lit up during the Flower and Light Movement: Ukima Park and Tulips event. From April 8–16, the primroses will also be illuminated.
Note: Toneri Park in Adachi will also get a night-time makeover with light-ups of cherry blossoms and nemophila in the same event period.

Ukima Park is a two-minute walk from Ukimafunado Station on the JR Saikyō Line (only 20 minutes from Shinjuku Station).Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
