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.
Shibuya is a busy station served by seven railway lines and multiple bus routes, making it a very accessible transportation hub. Less than three minutes from Shibuya Station is Sakuragaoka, a busy area that caters to all kinds of people, including students, workers, entertainment seekers and residents.
Sakurazaka, its popular main street, is a symbol of the area. The beautiful cherry trees lined up along its 150-meter length attract crowds of people. During cherry blossom season, about 30 trees are lit up with 40 LED lights. Enjoy a magical nighttime view of gorgeously-decorated blossoms that can only be seen at this time of year.
Note: This event is sponsored in part by the Spring Illuminations Model Business Grant, a program run jointly by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Please check the official event website for the latest updates on opening dates and times, prices, and other information.
