Ohanami in Ueno Park

International sakura paradise!

Sakura-dori Avenue in Ueno Park provides a glorious scene of a long flower tunnel made of cherry blossoms. Here, people from all over the world join in Japan's famous sakura (cherry blossoms) viewing. It is truly an international event. On the day I was there, I saw many foreign people who were sitting and looking at the cherry trees peacefully. They would often stop walking to take pictures. Some of them were holding ohanami parties with their friends.

There are various kinds of cherry trees in Ueno Park. The most popular one is in full bloom in early April, but lots of other cherry trees show their flowers either earlier or later than the regular cherry blossoms. We can enjoy those flowers from mid March to mid April.
