Hanami day tour
Here is a list of some of Toky's best cherry blossom spots from which you can choose to visit for this tour. Pick up a couple of "hanami" spots you may want to visit and please let us know about them. We will make the itinerary exclusively for you. On the day of the tour, meet your guide in the morning (or in the afternoon) at your hotel, then go on the sakura quest. The tour will conclude with one of the hanami spots so that you can enjoy the beauty of the cherry blossoms, staying under the trees. Before starting your party, don't forget to get some Hanami snacks and drinks in a foodstuff market area called "Depachika" in the department store. It's really fun.
*Please note many “Sakura Festivals” and illuminations of sakura at night across Japan will be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however it will be possible to visit all cherry blossom sites.
Starting time: 9 a.m. (or 2 p.m.)
