Feb/16/2019 - Mar/31/2019 Mito Plum Blossom Festival4.3
from 2/16 '19 to 3/31 '19
Plum blossom(Ume) is a special flower for Japanese that tells people spring is just around the corner.
Why don't you visit "Mito Plum Blossom Festival" at "Kairakuen" which is one of the three great gardens in Japan?
"Kairakuen" is the large garden which was built in 1842 by the local lord Tokugawa Nariaki with 3,000 trees of around 100 varieties of plum blossoms. Kairakuen means "park to be enjoyed together".
Viewing plum blossoms is not the only fun to be had.
You can also enjoy other events such as "Nodate(outdoor green tea ceremony)", the photo session with Mito Komon, and Taiko(Japanese drum) performance.

Amazing in bloom. Visited as the plum blossoms were finishing. Was also festival on at the same time. If it was out of season probably wouldn't rate as 5 stars. Beautiful park nether the less.

This is one of the top three parks in all of Japan. It is is rich in history and is extremely lively during the plum blossom festival held in early spring. During the festival there are many events including tea ceremonies, live music, plum wine tasting, stalls selling grilled chicken, squid and more, illuminations in the evening of the plum trees and bamboo forest and even a short display of fireworks one of the evenings. While early March is best for the plum blossom festival, it is a nice spot to go for a walk in every season.
