    Cherry blossom at Koganei Park

    Koganei Park is also one of the most popular sites for viewing cherry blossoms in Tokyo.

    The park has some 1,700 cherry trees of such species as Yama-zakura, Sato-zakura and Somei Yoshino. 430 of them are nurtured in the “Sakura-no-sono”, a cherry-tree orchard of 2.9 hectares.

    They burst into pink-and-white blossoms for about one month from the end of March through the end of April.
