Sumida park near Asakura station is a great spot.

The cherry trees should start to blossom soon. They usually are in full bloom from the last week of March until the middle of April. However, sometimes it's so windy, the blossoms fall off the trees early.

Ueno park and Yoyogi Park are probably the most popular spots in Tokyo to enjoy the Sakura. They have such beautiful landscapes there, but there are so many other places too.

I just read a news article that says the cherry blossom season has officially begun as of yesterday, March 16. It said it is the earliest start on record. Enjoy!!!

I was out and about town today and it seems it's still a little early for the sakura viewing.

I just read a news article that the cherry blossoms are at peak already! Better hurry to enjoy them. I sure hope it doesn't get too windy and blow them all down.

The worst thing about the cherry tree blossoms is they only last 1-2 weeks :-(

I just got back from Ueno park yesterday. It's very crowded, but worth it.

The season is almost over. I think this weekend will be the last chance to see the cherry blossoms in 2013.

I think this wind today has blown off the last cherry blossoms. Time to wait until next year. They definitely don't last long enough. I wish there were a way to keep them longer somehow.
