We are waiting for the cherry blossom (sakura 桜) festivals in Tokyo. The cherry blossom season is coming soon.
Why don’t you go to Toneri Park 舎人公園 on 1st – 2nd April, 2017?
The photos on this page were taken in the park on 16th March, 2017.
There are several varieties of cherry blossom trees in Japan.
In March, some varieties of them start blooming, as they are the ones that bloom earlier than others.
Usually in Tokyo, the more common and popular varieties of the trees are in full bloom between the end of March and early April.
This park is quite large and spacious.
I introduce an unknown park Toneri Park 舎人公園 for tourists to see cherry blossoms in Tokyo.
The cherry blossom festival will be held on April 1st and 2nd in this year (2017).
On the festival days, many food vendors will open up to sell inside the park.
However, usually only one food shop is available.
Let’s enjoy good food and drinks and watching cherry blossoms!
Drinking alcoholic beverages is permitted in the park.
This flower is Tsubaki 椿.
The park is well maintained and clean bathrooms are available.
Some ducks are friendly.
Don’t feed in this park.
This is good place for picnic.

This park’s cherry blossom festival is once a year.
Date : 1st (Sat) – 2nd (Sun) April, 2017
10am – 4pm
The nearest station is Tonerikoen 舎人公園 Station on Nippori Toneri Liner 日暮里舎人ライナー.
It is a good idea to walk around both east and west side of the station. I prefer the east side though.
