Tokyo has a myriad of beautiful plum blossom destinations to explore, and Machida's Shikisai no Mori Yakushiike Park is just one of them. The park grounds are home to around 250 trees that bloom in shades of red and white, creating a truly stunning welcome to the spring season.

When the trees are looking their best a festival takes place on the park grounds, and this typically happens around the late February through mid-March timeframe. Along with the bounty of natural beauty to enjoy, the event will also include local performing arts displays and various food trucks selling seasonal eats and drinks.
