Plum Blossom Festival in Mito

Celebrating the first signs of spring

Kairakuen is a large park in Mito and it's famous for its over 3,000 plum trees of different kinds and colours. When we were there in the middle of March, I felt that the blossoms were still behind the ones in Tokyo, although it's just an hour away from Ueno Station by express train. During the festival time from late February until the end of March you'll find lots of activities going on (usually on Sundays only), like open-air tea ceremonies or traditional music performances.
