Night Cherry Viewing Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan

Experience hosted by Masashi

3 hours
Includes food, drinks, transportation
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English, Japanese

What you'll do

This is a night walk to see beautiful cherry blossoms in the darkness.

Illuminated cherry will show you different faces from daytime.
Also, you'll see beautiful contrast between cherry and buildings.

During this season, many Japanese people will be enjoying cherry that bloom only 7 to 10 days. You may gain little insight how much Japanese people love cherry blossoms. Also, you'll see many happy campers enjoy drinking and chatting under cherry trees \(^_^)/
I'll explain how "Hanami (cherry viewing)" started, too.

Let's have fun walk and do as Japanese do !!
Other things to note
Public transportation fee (back to the meeting place and after the tour)

I'm National Certified Guide and professional flower designer.

After graduating from university in the U.S., I've traveled about 50 countries. Local people were so kind to me. So, I would like to welcome guests from overseas like they did to me. Please enjoy JAPAN!

I've been living in Tokyo almost 20 years; however, I'm always excited to see beautiful cherry here in Tokyo both in day and night.

I would like to show you stunning view of illuminated cherry blossoms.
Hope it will be unforgettable memory to your journey.

Masashi was a superb host. I had just arrived in Japan as a solo traveler, and the same night I scheduled "Night Cherry Viewing" with Masashi. I had been waiting for years to see the sakura in Japan, and Masashi made my experience unforgettable! First of all, he was very understanding and patient. I had gotten the wrong subway and was late for the event, but Masashi was so kind and understanding and helped me find my way to him. We first went along the Sumida river, saw the Tokyo Tokyo skytree next to a full moon and under full blossomed beautiful cherry trees. People doing hanami under the cherry trees and the night felt special and celebratory. We then went to Sensou-ji, the magical temple of Asakusa, beautiful at night because there weren't so many tourists as during the day. Masashi was very knowledgeable about explaining various things about the temple and traditions. This was followed by a walk under a beautiful sakura tunnel in the park, but as there were so many people, Masashi made the experience extra special by taking us further to a location that wasn't part of the initial plan; this last location was just magical - illuminated cherry trees around a beautiful lake and the full moon lighting our path, it was truly the best sakura spot! Lastly, I am deeply humbled my Masashi's kindness - he went at great lengths to accommodate my rather strict and unfortunate dietary restrictions (gluten-free vegetarian) - we had a picnic with yummy onigiri, cheese and the most delicious sake! Masashi also is extremely knowledgeable about everything sakura and flowers, and a great conversationalist. I had waited for years to do a picnic under the blossomed cherry trees and it was the best night. That kickstarted my Japan trip and made it the best trip yet. Thank you Masashi for your kindness and making my most special sakura memory in Japan!
