※Tokyo Government has requested people to refrain from a drinking party to prevent infection of coronavirus in the park.
Inokashira Park is one of the most popular spots to see Sakura cherry blossoms in Tokyo. The park is located in Kichijoji area, 20 mins by train from Shinjuku Sta.
Inokashira Park has rich nature and relaxing atmosphere. There is a large pond in the park, and you can rent a boat and enjoy paddling on the pond surrounded by pink cherry blossoms. About 500 cherry trees are planted in the park and 300 trees are around the pond.
Many varieties of cherry trees such as Somei-Yoshino, or Yae-Zakura are planted in the park and can be enjoyed from early-March till late-April. Sakura's reflection on the surface of the pond is simply fantastic and breathtaking.
In addition, the cherry trees are illuminated at night, it creates a mysterious yet beautiful scenery.
During the season, the park is really crowded with people who enjoy Hanami(spread out the picnic sheet under the cherry trees and eat and drink),so it's bustling and lively all the day long.
Kichijoji area is also home to the Ghibli Museum close to the Inokashira Park, and many stylish cafes and shops are there. You would never get bored to spend your free time!

full of greenery and small lake for paddling boats. There are two zoo, of of which keeps birds and big troupe of pinky swan. The other has monkey and elephant. Very good place for families activities or dating for couples.

Love the park. Very pretty, everything very green. Benches were nice and clean, you won't find trash any where. It's a great place to sit and do nothing. Very relaxing. Beautiful scenery.
