A Hidden Place in Tokyo to Enjoy The Cherry Blossoms
This place might be Tokyo’s secret place for Hanami (“flower viewing”). Located between the busy districts of Roppongi and Omotesandō, it offers a quiet place to walk. It is located inside a cemetery but you’re free to enter as long as you remain respectful. You can walk under a 750m tunnel formed by cherry trees, which are covered with flowers during Hanami. You can get a good view of the famous skyscraper of Roppongi : Roppongi Hills Mori Tower.
I would recommend to visit this place any season, as it is a fresh and calm place in the city. The cherry trees are majestic at any time of the year, green in summer and changing color in autumn.
I remember reading South of the border, west of the sun by Haruki Murakami, and the main character used to go for walks there. I understand why.
