Where are Tokyo's best hanami (cherry blossom watching) spots?

Tokyo Hanami Spots

PlaySenpai Recommends


There are a lot of good hanami viewing spots in downtown Tokyo (Yoyogi Park, Shinjuku Park, The Imperial Palace), but I like to take a quick train to Kichijōji and view the cherry blossoms around the lake at Inokashira Park. It's just 30 minutes by train from Shibuya Station on the Keiyo Inokashira Line (get off at Inokashirakoen Station). You can even rent a swan-shaped pedal boat to view the hanami from the water. Also, there's a little zoo within the park if you're looking for more to do while you're there.
