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.

Rikugien Gardens, built in the 18th century for a feudal lord, is known for its weeping cherry tree. It's 15 meters tall, and its branches have a 20-meter span. The scenery is worth seeing in daytime, but it makes an even bigger impression at night, when it's illuminated with dozens of lights. At these times, the park's opening hours are extended to 21:00, so make an evening trip to Rikugien to experience its mystical atmosphere.
