Tohoku under the sakura

The cherry blossoms, or sakura, are the great attraction of early spring in Japan, during which the population goes out picnicking in the parks under the swollen branches of pink flowers. Great time to enjoy the hanami in Sendai.

Nishi Park

Nishi Park is the oldest park in Sendai. It has also been known since the Meiji period (1868-1912) under the name of park Sakuragaoka, literally "the hill of the cherry trees". Nearly a thousand cherry trees have been planted on the hill, and offer a splendid view of trees extending their branches above the paths, creating a floral dome.

Yatai, small stands offering food, are set up in the park and allow visitors to picnic under the blossoms.

Mikamine park

Mikamine Park is a park located south of the heart of Sendai. A typical family park but with nearly 600 cherry trees of different varieties planted between large lawns where families can settle down to picnic peacefully for the hanami.

The view of the city center is also fantastic from this park and great for photos with the sakura.

Tsutsujigaoka Park

Tsutsujigaoka Park is located in the middle of Sendai. Around 360 cherry trees are located throughout the park.

Among them are Somei Yoshino or Shidarezakura variety cherry trees, cherry trees with drooping weeping willow branches! These are the jewel of the park, with branches several meters falling from the top to caress the ground. Dotting the lawns, they attract many visitors for the hanami.
