Note: The 2024 installment of this event has already taken place.

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.
