Tokyo's Mukojima Hyakkaen Gardens first opened in the late Edo period, and at that time around 360 plum trees were planted. Since those early days the gardens have been known as a famous destination for enjoying plum blossoms, and there are approximately 20 types of plum trees on the grounds including Tsukikage, Hatsukari, Shirakaga, Dochibe, and Kagoshima Beni.

An annual festival at the gardens celebrates these much-loved blooms, with a variety of Edo period inspired street performances also taking place at the event. Please note that in the event of rain, the street performances may be cancelled.

Venue: Mukojima Hyakkaen Gardens 

When: Feb 11th - Mar 5th 2023
