It is lined with cherry blossom trees so it’s a popular spot for hanami parties.

They also have loads of tasty food stalls and alcoholic drinks during the cherry blossom season.

Night illuminations of the blossoming flowers ensure the place is packed from morning to night.

If you’re in Tokyo during the cherry blossom season it’s a unique atmosphere to experience, but of course, crowded.
