    Koganei Park, located in the western suburbs of Tokyo, is counted among the best cherry-blossom viewing spots in Tokyo.

    Koganei Park

    Koganei Koen is a spacious park covering an area of about 80 hectares. The park is an excellent place for relaxation and leisure, with grassy grounds, wooded areas and playgrounds.

    The Edo-Tokyo Open-air Architectural Museum (popularly called in the shortened form “Tatemono-en”), a wonderful field museum gathering old buildings, is located inside the park (admission extra)

    Cherry blossom viewing at Koganei Park

    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.
