Cherry blossoms at Koganei Park
late March – late April 2020
On 27 March, Tokyo Metropolitan Government asked its residents (and visitors, by extension) not to go visit o-hanami (cherry blossom viewing) sites.
*as a preventative measure against COVID-19
Koganei Park, located in the western suburbs of Tokyo, is counted among the best cherry-blossom viewing spots in Tokyo.
Koganei Koen is a spacious park covering an area of about 80 hectares. It 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 Japanese shortened name “Tatemono-en”), a wonderful field museum gathering old buildings, is located inside the park (admission extra).

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.
