Enjoy a full-day sightseeing tour of Tokyo’s most popular sites for viewing cherry blossoms, including Shinjuku Gyoen and Showa Memorial Park. Your expert guide shows you the most dazzling displays of blossoms along with the iconic landmark, Tokyo Tower. Get great photo ops and learn about the Japanese tradition of ‘hanami’ (cherry blossom viewing) throughout the day. Plus, for lunch, enjoy a delicious Japanese-style meal.
Please note: This tour is seasonal and runs annually in March and April. The dates are subject to change.
Meet your guide at the Keio Plaza Hotel in the morning and board a comfortable coach, driving through a cherry tree–lined boulevard in Kunitachi en route to your first stop: Showa Memorial Park (officially, Showa Commemorative National Government Park). On arrival, stroll for 1.5 hours with your guide through a grassy area featuring 200 cherry trees in bloom, and visit the Japanese garden and bonsai garden.
Take a break from sightseeing to enjoy a Japanese-style lunch in Western Tokyo, known as the Tama area.
Then re-board your coach, and head to the Tokyo Tower Main Observatory to take in panoramic city views from the nearly 500-foot-tall (150-meter) tower. On a clear day, you can even see Mt. Fuji in the distance.
This tour takes you to Shinjuku Gyoen. Your guide accompanies you to Shinjuku Gyoen, a large park that was originally laid out in 1772 as part of the residence of a feudal lord. The current configuration of the gardens was completed in 1906 for the Imperial Palace and rebuilt after the destruction of World War II. The garden features more than 1,000 cherry trees of 65 different varieties and is a favorite spot for hanami.
After roughly an hour, say farewell to your guide at Tokyo or Asakusa Station and make your own way to your next destination.
