A few of the many groups that gather together for cherry blossom season



This year I tried to focus on the different tribes that assemble beneath the cherry trees for hanami season in Tokyo. There were some scenes I expected, and many that were surprises. In this photo of Shinjuku Gyoen, my good friend from San Francisco’s back is in the middle, with a couple on the left and cosplayers on the right.


  1. A coincidence Jared. This is our first visit in Tokyo, only here for 6 days and yesterday we visited this absolutely beautiful park and enjoyed the cherry blossoms. Tonight I am searching for ‘pocket parks’ and other green spaces in Tokyo and came across your site. We’ll refer to it if we return…..and we most certainly will. Cheers. M and M
