Plum Blossom In Tokyo
Plum blossoms can arguably be just as impressive as the cherry blossoms Japan is so famous for. In fact, plum blossom-viewing was more popular than cherry blossom viewing for a good part of ancient Japan's history (prior to the Heian era). In Tokyo, the plum blossom viewing season generally lasts from mid-February to mid-March. Below are some of the best spots in the city!
Hanegi Park 羽根木公園
Located in Setagaya ward at a 5-minute walk from Umegaoka station, the Hanegi Park has a sloping topography and boasts over 600 plum trees, making it one of the most impressive places to see the blossoms in Tokyo. The park is particularly popular with families because of its playground. If you go during the plum season on weekends, you can also enjoy the open-air tea ceremony and the sound of traditional instruments.
Shinjuku Gyoen 新宿御苑
Shinjuku Gyoen in central Tokyo (near Shinjuku station) is one of the great emblematic parks of Tokyo. Beautiful in all seasons because of its sheer size and its mix of traditional Japanese and European-style gardens, it also has some 300 plum trees making it a good choice for an early spring stroll. Make sure to go there a little later on during the sakura season too! See the link below for more information about the park.
Yushima Tenmangu 湯島天満宮
Although very popular with the locals, Yushima Tenmangu is a bit off of the standard sightseeing path of the Ueno area, making it a peaceful oasis where you can escape the bustle of the city. It's particularly worth the go during the plum blossom season because there is a plum tree garden within the shrine's grounds. The combination of the 300 blooming trees and the ancient Shinto architecture makes this spot a true gem that you should visit while you're in Ueno from mid-February to mid-March.
