The Sumidagawa River is a celebrated destination for admiring cherry blossoms since the premodern Edo period. The festival takes place on the Taito-ku side, in Sumida Park home to some 600 trees of varieties including the Somei Yoshino, Oshima-zakura, and Sato-zakura. Enjoy the contrast between the blossoms along the riverbank and the towering TOKYO SKYTREE(R). Imitate tasteful visitors and take in the view of cherry blossoms on both sides from a yakatabune houseboat or waterbus. Or delight in the majestic view of trees in the park illuminated at night.
