Takanawa Sakura Festival

Over 200 sakura trees in over a dozen types to enjoy

Venue: Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa When: Mid Mar - Early Apr 2024

There are three Prince Hotels in the Takanawa area of Tokyo – Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa, Grand Prince Hotel Shin Takanawa, and The Prince Sakura Tower Tokyo. A sprawling Japanese garden sits in the middle of them, and it's particularly delightful in spring with over 200 cherry blossom trees in seventeen varieties adding some ethereal beauty to the area.
