Cherry Blossom Viewing at the Tokyo National Museum

博物館でお花見をCome enjoy the fantastic cherry blossom at Tokyo National Museum!

“Cherry Blossom Viewing at the Tokyo National Museum” is an annual event that coincides with the spring opening of the Museum Garden (Saturday, March 9 – Sunday, April 14, 2013). There are many artworks featuring cherry blossom on display in the galleries, as well as a host of events including gallery talks, haiku poetry gatherings and concerts.

In the Museum Garden, over ten species of cherry tree blossom one after another. During this period the garden is quietly popular as a “cherry blossom spot for adults”, a place where visitors can escape the bustle of Ueno Park to admire the flowers in peace.

Cherry blossom in a secret garden, together with cherry blossom in ancient and modern masterpieces. Come and enjoy the world’s most exquisite cherry blossom in this storehouse of Japanese art.
