Cherry Blossom Night Viewing in Tokyo

With cherry blossom season approaching in the next couple of weeks, how about planning a date enjoying cherry blossoms being lit up at night?

There is something special about viewing cherry blossoms at night. It offers different scenery compared to cherry blossoms during the day, somewhat fleeting atmosphere.

And don’t forget the huge bonus! There will not be as many people during the day and you can enjoy a quiet date with your loved one.

Here are some recommended location:

Roppongi Hills

Situated in convenient place, you can explore the beautiful cherry blossoms followed by a romantic dinner at Roppongi Hills or Azabu.

Opening Time: 17:00 – 23:00
