There are several varieties of cherry blossom trees in Japan. There are 1000 cherry trees in the park.
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 and comfortable.
I introduce an unknown park Toneri Park 舎人公園 for tourists to see cherry blossoms in Tokyo.
On the festival days, many food vendors and souvenir shops will open up to sell inside the park. We enjoy drinking, eating local food.
Paid sake tasting
Instead of doing shots, we sip sake with mini-size cup in Japan.
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.
Don't feed in this park.
Music concert and performance event sections are also fun.
This is good place for picnic. You can bring your own food and alcoholic drinks into the park.

10:00 am - 4:00 pm
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.
Another good park to see cherry blossoms in Ueno 上野 Tokyo
In December, I recommend this event in Shibuya 渋谷 Tokyo
