Bokutei Sumida Park Cherry Blossom Festival

10:00am – 9:00pm

A short, breezy walk from the Tokyo Skytree is Sumida Park, home to the Bokutei Sakura Matsuri (Cherry Blossom Festival).

What happens?

The Bokutei centers around the park’s kilometer-long line of cherry trees, and features night illuminations and festival stalls. Since the flowers stretch for such a long way, be sure to wear your good shoes and be prepared for a little bit of night chill to get the most out of your nocturnal hanami. Light up is from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Tip: You may even be able to spot geisha at the Mukojima Geisha Chaya tea event held from March 22–24 and March 29–31. On the weekend, tea will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on weekdays from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
