Tokyo's Jindai Botanical Gardens are home to around 600 sakura trees in several varieties, with most of them located in the dedicated cherry blossom garden area. An annual festival is held on the grounds when the trees are at their best, and the fact that there are numerous variants including early-blooming okanzakura and late-blooming satozakura means the blossoms can be enjoyed over a longer period.

Along with all of the natural beauty to enjoy, the event also boasts music performances and food trucks on select days.

Venue: Jindai Botanical Gardens When: Mar 25th - Apr 9th 2023




The Jindai Botanical Gardens can be easily accessed via public transport or private vehicle.

For those visiting via public transport, buses are available to the gardens from Chofu Station. Take the Odakyu Bus (Platform No. 12) bound for Kichijoji Station or Mitaka Station and get off at the dedicated stop for Jindai Botanical Gardens.

For those who opt to drive, the venue is around 5 minutes from the Chofu Interchange on the Chuo Expressway.
