Ueno Sakura Matsuri

Near JR Ueno station, you'll find Ueno Park, a beautiful vast area with shrines, many museums and even a lotus pond within it. The park also boasts countless sakura trees, making it one of the greatest places in Tokyo to experience hanami (cherry blossom viewing).

During sakura season, the park becomes packed with people rolling out their sheets and having picnics under the branches of the sakura trees in full bloom. The Ueno sakura matsuri, as it is sometimes referred to, doesn't have precise dates, as the blooming depends greatly on the weather, but usually, you'll be able to enjoy the cherry blossoms from late March to early April.

Location

Ueno Park is located a 2-minute walk from the JR Shinjuku station.
