SAKURA IN CONCRETE JUNGLE

Many tourists come to Japan to enjoy sakura blossoms and take part in the khans, a long-standing Japanese tradition, when the Japanese go to parks and gardens to have a picnic with employees, friends, and their families. They walk, drink, socialize and have fun under the spreading sakura trees, thus paying tribute to the fleeting beauty of flowering and celebrating the arrival of spring.

But it is not necessary to go to such large famous parks as, for example, Shinjuku Gyoen or Ueno Park to enjoy the marvelous beauty of sakura blossoms. In Tokyo, this huge metropolis, which many people imagine as the city of the future, erected from glass and concrete, there are many streets where you can see sakura blossoming in abundance.A pleasant bonus will be the lack of crowds of tourists and vacationers, which are full of city parks. Such streets can be found in every district of the city, you only need to know where to look.

But if you go to the Western Exit of Shibuya station, you will see a beautiful slope, completely planted with sakura trees.

AKASAKA
Akasaka is Tokyo’s business center, with government offices and private companies in the area. And how do you like the road along which sakura trees grow? In the spring you can take stunning pictures here. There are not so many people on the street during the day and no one will bother you to replenish your Instagram with a couple of dozens of excellent pictures.

NAKANO
