Cherry Blossoms & Hanami to Hit Tokyo Midtown For ‘MIDTOWN BLOSSOM 2019’

25.January.2019 | SPOT

Tokyo Midtown in Roppongi is beckoning the spring once again this year with MIDTOWN BLOSSOM 2019 which is set to run from March 15 to April 14.

 

This will be the 12th time this event has taken place which is held to celebrate springtime. The annual event brings in many people every year to one of Tokyo’s many famous cherry blossom sites. Much is planned for this year’s event as the 200 meter long street Sakura-dori will be decked out with outdoor lounges and illuminated cherry blossom trees. The spring vibe will be felt both indoors and outdoors too with a range of beautiful decorations.

 

The 200 meter row of cherry blossom trees line the garden area of Tokyo Midtown. In the daytime their pink hues can be looked at from down below inside the building while at night the trees will be lit up, calling you to stand and gaze from underneath them.

 

Cherry Blossom Light-Up

The illuminations will take place during the full bloom of the cherry blossoms. Before the full bloom however pink coloured lights can be enjoyed earlier during the evening for people to get a feel of what’s to come when the blossoms bloom. When they do come out, the lights will switch to white to create a magical scene. The row of trees can even be enjoyed from some of the restaurants in Tokyo Midtown, so why not enjoy a romantic dinner while gazing down at Japan’s cherry blossoms?
