Still time to view Sakura this week! While visiting on April 17 & 18, the Sakura // Cherry Blossoms are still showing about 75-85% of their blooms throughout the park.

Is it too late to see the Sakura // Cherry Blossoms? Will they last until this weekend?
The weather seems calm enough for most of the week until the rain starts on Friday and through the weeekend – by Sunday I will estimate that the blossoms will lose much of their blooms and get down to the 50% or even less by then. Also, it should be noted that more and more leaves are beginning to grow in every day. Eventually the leaves will replace all the blossoms and is another good indicator on how quickly the blossoms will begin to fall.

So if you want to see them before they’re gone, now is the time! Next week will likely be too late – see some of the latest photos from the 17-18th:

    Tokyoites, please help rerefsh my memory. When I was last in Tokyo in late March a few years ago, I did the rounds of the parks and gardens, including a rather small one that was off the beaten path, located not too far from the Tsukiji Market. It was near the water, had a large rapeseed patch in bloom along with some enormous magnolia trees that weren’t ready to blossom. There was also a plant nursery and a little canal that cut through the park. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
