In 1720, cherry trees were planted by then shogun, Tokugawa Yoshimune, at a hill of Asukayama for enjoyment of the public. This area has become one of the most famous parks for cherry blossom enjoyment in Tokyo.
Yesterday, I had a nice stroll in the park at lunch time.
This is the entrance to the park from Hongo-Dori street.
A nice playground.
Shinkansen and other train tracks are close from the park.
There are nice trails through the park.
A nice little clock tower.
A family enjoys a picnic under cherry blossoms.
It has been windy, so I don't think the flowers will last much longer this year.
