Tokyo counts many gorgeous cherry blossom/sakura spots that are all worth your time and attention if you do not mind the bustling crowds. But, away from the masses and mostly kept secret by many photographers and sakura specialists, there is a 2km long sakura wonderland that will literally blow your mind with its beauty and its total lack of tourists. Behold Shakujii Kawa!
Thanks to its ultra-dense collection of sakura, its river and many bridges, Sakujii Kawa is by far, even taking into account the gorgeous blossoms along Naka-Meguro River, the most beautiful place to enjoy the sakura season in Japan! And to make things even more enjoyable, Sakujii Kawa is strangely ignored by both foreign and local tourists alike!
