Cherry Blossom Viewing and Tokyo Tower Tour

Cherry Blossom Viewing and Tokyo Tower Tour

Discover the beauty of some of Tokyo’s most scenic locations during the height of its famous cherry blossom season on this 7.5-hour tour that includes lunch. Start your cherry-blossom experience in front of the Keio Plaza Hotel, where you’ll meet your guide and board a coach for the ride to Showa Memorial Park via Kunitachi’s cherry tree–lined boulevard.

The officially named Showa Commemorative National Government Park is a showcase for 200 cherry trees in bloom. Stroll at a leisurely pace and see the Japanese and bonsai gardens during your 1.5 hours here.

Take a break from cherry blossom viewing for a Japanese-style lunch in the Tama area known as Western Tokyo.

Once you’ve had your fill, re-board the bus for Tokyo Tower Main Observatory, where you’ll ascend the nearly 500-foot-tall (150-meter) tower for outstanding views of the Japanese capital. On clear days, Mt Fuji is visible off in the distance. After your visit, feel free to stop by the nearby Zojoji Temple where more cherry blossoms can be seen.

Head next to Shinjuku Gyoen Park. Originally created as part of the residence of a Japanese lord in 1772, the magnificent collection of more than 1,300 cherry trees was added in 1906 for the Imperial Palace. This picturesque spot is renowned as the perfect spot for hanami, the Japanese custom of viewing flowers or trees while in bloom.

Alternatively, depending on seasonality, visit Chidorigafuchi and Kitanomaru Park, perhaps the most famous hanami site in all of Japan. Over a million cherry-blossom lovers come to this beautiful area to admire its many blossoming trees. Take the pedestrian path over the moat that leads to Chidorigafuchi, where a canopy of pink blossoms creates a colorful retreat.

See the blossoms reflected in the water down below as you admire the bright blue rowboats that break its glassy surface. As you continue on to Kitanomaru Park, you’ll have excellent photo opportunities near the oldest remaining gate of Edo Castle, which dates to 1636.

After roughly an hour at either location, leave your guide behind at Tokyo, Shinjuku or Asakusa station, where you’ll continue on to your next destination or back to your hotel.

I do not, unfortunately, remember our tour guide and #39;s name, but she was exceptionally knowledgeable and made the tour an amazing experience. We were very lucky to have seen all of the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Every stop was beautiful. Our guide was an excellent hostess.

Of all the tours we went on, this was by far the best. Not only did we get to see the sakura in bloom, we were given a good amount of time at each stop to take our time and take in our surroundings. We went to Tokyo Tower and actually got to spend time browsing the gift shops. On the half day Tokyo City Tour, we were in, up and out before we even knew what hit us! I would highly recommend this tour if you are going during sakura season. It is so worth it.

The guide took us to Showa Park first, where we walked around on our own to explore the beauty of the cherry blossoms. We saw a bonsai area and the caretaker of the trees. We walked around the park itself where it is filled with sakuras, pink and white, everywhere. We then traveled to an old area in the park where there is a little Edo village. We met a gentleman who explained the buildings there were over 240 years old! He showed us around one of the houses and explained each room as we walked through and what purposed they served. Very unexpected in such a huge park! Our next stop was the traditional Japanese lunch. While it was a good experience, the food wasn't very tasty to me. Still, we ate it as if it was the best thing ever! After lunch, we went to Chidorigafuchi and Kitanomaru Park where we got to see more sakuras and saw the oldest gate of Edo Castle. The view of the trees along the water was amazing. Our last stop was actually Tokyo Tower. The tower has pretty good attractions such as a One Piece tour, paid separately, and a small shop on the ground floor. If you are an anime/manga fan, I would highly recommend taking some time to browse the shop. There's a lot there to buy.

The tour was wonderful! Our tour guide was very nice and friendly in the Japanese way. There were only two sites visited for the cherry blossom and then the Tokyo tower. Lunch was really nice. Expect a lot of people but the view is worth it.

Well organised. And nice selection of points. Unfortunately, the blooming of the cherry blossoms was a bit delayed but this was really under nobody's control.

I really enjoyed the Cherry Blossom tour. The trees were magically loaded with blossoms and as beautiful as a fairy tale. Loved the views from the Tokyo Tower.
The only unfortunate thing was the non stop rain but the tour itself was excellent.
