In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
The Chiyoda Cherry Blossom (Sakura) Festival is held each year between late March and early April along the 700-meter-long Chidorigafuchi-ryokudo Walkway. This spot is known across Japan for its magnificent cherry blossoms. Around 260 trees of the Somei-yoshino and Oshima varieties are illuminated at dusk. The Chidorigafuchi boating area is also open late during the festival so that visitors can view this magical sight from the water.
