Plum blossoms in Tokyo 東京の観梅スポット

Winter blooms

If you're in Tokyo in February, the blossoming trees you might see are plum trees, not cherry trees! These blossoms herald the end of winter. Discover the best places to enjoy them in the capital city.

Yushima Tenmangu, the shrine for students


Also nicknamed Yushima Tenjin, there are 300 plum trees that you can admire in this shrine's park. The shrine is particularly popular with students, and during university entrance exams many young Japanese come to pray for success. Located near Tokyo University and Ueno Park, Yushima Tenmangu also hosts a plum blossom festival from early February to early March.


Address: 3-30-1 Yushima, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo
Access: Yushima Station (Chiyoda Line) or Hongo-Sanchome Station (Marunouchi Line or Toei Oedo Line)
From 6:00 to 20:00

Koishikawa Korakuen, garden of the Edo era


Right in the center of Tokyo you'll find Koishikawa Korakuen, known as one of the oldest gardens in the city. Although its cherry trees are more famous, the few plum trees that bloom there have beautiful bright colors. Here too, a festival is organized in their honor from the beginning of February to the beginning of March. While you're there, why not take the opportunity to visit Tokyo Dome, next door?


Address: 1-6-6 Koraku, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo

Kyu Shiba Rikyu, in the middle of the city


Kyu Shiba Rikyu is a typical Japanese garden in a similar way to Koishikawa Korakuen, however instead of cutting you off from the outside environment, it offers landscapes that incorporate the surrounding buildings. A mix of tradition and modernity, which Tokyo does so well! In addition to the plum trees, you can also admire the rare winter cherry trees that bloom there at the same time.


Address: 1-4-1 Kaigan, Minato-ku, Tokyo
Access: Hamamatsucho Station (JR Yamanote Line) or Daimon Station (Toei Oedo Line and Toei Asakusa Line)
