More Sakura? Mochiron.
I paid a visit to Inokashira Koen in Kichijoji to check out the Sakura today, as it was my favorite spot in Tokyo when I was here in 2011 for the cherry blossom season. Amazingly enough, it seems we’re already past peak there – though things were still pretty darn spectacular, there was definitely less coverage than during my visit in April of 2011. Still beautiful however: while little known to tourists, Inokashira is one of the finest parks in Tokyo and Kichijoji is a lovely place to spend an afternoon.
