Enjoy beautiful weeping cherry tree and illumination at Rikugien Garden.

The weeping cherry tree, which is 15 meters high and 20 meters wide, is a symbol of Rikugien Garden. And from late March to early April (it depends on when cherry blossoms bloom), they will illuminate the cherry tree. It looks beautiful with a day light and at night with spot lights. You can enjoy amazing illumination with green tea and Japanese sweets.
