Always one of my favorite places eacg year to view the sakura. The walkway near there that is lit at night is simply spectacular.

What you don't see are the zillions of people shuffling in line for that boat ride. Worth it nevertheless!

Reminds of a scene of the same sort In Toyokawa City, Aichi. Both sides of the Sanagawa River are lined with cherry trees. Makes a tunnel for miles !

I am no longer in Japan. I miss the long Sunday walks from my apartment in Akasaka-mitsuke through Chidorigafuchi and on to Hibiya Park during the sakura season.
