Sakura at Showa Kinen Koen @ Tachikawa, Tokyo, Japan

Showa Kinen Koen is probably Tokyo answer for Keukenhof in Lisse, Holland. The park have abundance of tulips and they have cherry blossoms here but Keukenhof does not have it. Showa Kinen Koen is one of the largest park in Tokyo. The variety of flowers here, tulips, nanohara, cherry trees & lavender, makes this park have a unique view of spring in Japan. If you like cycling, you can also rent a bicycle to go around the park 14 kilometres track.
