Being the most famous Hanami spot of Japan, Ueno Park contains 1200 cherry trees, including 600 Yoshino cherry trees, with the cherry trees along the main path exceptionally stunning. Each year between mid-March and early April, Ueno Park holds the Sakura Festival as a means to attract visitor.
Activities such as ‘flea market’ will be held during the Sakura Festival. Not only can you admire the full bloom of the Sakura, but also add some antique goods to your shopping bag. To create a romantic atmosphere, 1000 candle lights will be hung around the park.
