Tokyo's Best Cherry Blossom Spots

The area between Azumabashi Bridge and Sakurabashi Bridge on the Sumida River has been a famous cherry blossom viewing spot since the Edo period.

The cherry trees on the banks of the Sumida River trace their origin to saplings planted by the order of Tokugawa Yoshimune, the eighth shogun, in 1717.

Approximately 1,000 cherry trees grow in Sumida Park. 

Visitors can enjoy viewing the lines of blooming trees on both sides of the Sumida River from a yakata-bune (Japanese old-fashioned houseboat).
