Cherry blossoms illuminated at Shukkei-en Garden

March 26 - April 4

Shukkei-en Garden has many different kinds of cherry trees which explode with color when in blossom.

Last year’s annual night time light up of the cherry blossoms was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, but we are pleased to say that the event will go ahead – though COVID-19 prevention measures in place – this year.


Opening hours
March 26 – April 4 18:00-21:00 (final admission at 20:30)

*The garden will be open during the day, but will close for a short time to prepare for the night time opening (daytime visitors can use their ticket to enter after dark).
