Tokyo Cherry Blossom Tour Description
One of the most warmly anticipated events in Tokyo is the period of sakura or cherry blossoms. These light pink flowers ( Sakura ) are so loved that there is a special event called ‘hanami’, which literally means ‘flower viewing’. It is the time when after a cold winter many Japanese people emerge from their homes again to celebrate spring by having lively picnics under the blooming trees. Traditional foods, snacks, beer, and sake often accompany these gatherings.
The cherry blossoms in Tokyo generally bloom from the end of March to the beginning of April, and their blooming season only lasts for a very short time: one or two weeks. Because of this short blooming season, the cherry blossom season is thought to be symbolic of the concept that nothing is permanent and that everything good should be enjoyed to the fullest while it is there.
In 2023, we will organize a walking tour to enjoy the cherry blossom season in Tokyo with an English-speaking guide. It will be a small group tour with a maximum number of participants of 10 per tour. You will be visiting some of the hottest cherry blossom viewing spots of Tokyo, loved by locals and tourists alike, and good for some awesome pictures and great memories!
