MIDTOWN BLOSSOM 2018
16 March – 15 April 2017
Cherry blossom in the middle of Tokyo
Tokyo Midtown, near Roppongi intersection, is a commercial complex at the vertex of the “Roppongi Art Triangle”. It is also a popular spot for o-hanami, or cherry-blossom viewing, in the middle of Tokyo.
The outdoor space “Midpark” is connected seamlessly with Hinoki-cho Park (run by Tokyo’s Minato City). These areas put together, there are some 150 cherry trees of 8 species that burst into bloom every spring.
The sight of the blossoms is particularly pretty at Tokyo Midtown, along a stretch of 200 meters called “Sakura-dori”, lined with Somei Yoshino cherry trees. The blossoming season of this path usually falls around the end of March through the beginning of April. But from 16 March through 15 April 2018, these trees will be lit up so nicely that the night view is fantastic even before and after the blossoming.
MIDTOWN BLOSSOM 2018
The annual event “Midtown Blossom” will take place in the garden and the buildings, to celebrate the sakura blooms.
◆ Illuminated cherry trees
The cherry trees lining the stretch of Sakura-dori will be lit up in pink shades before the blossoming, and in white at the burst of flowers. Check out the restaurants with a terrace facing the path, for dinner with a fantastic view of the illuminated cherry trees.
