Shiba Park Hotel in Tokyo to Host Cherry Blossom-Viewing Event
Shiba Park Hotel in Tokyo announced on January 22 that it will host an “Ohanami Sakura Walk” event between March 28 and April 5 to escort hotel guests to nearby spots where cherry blossoms beautifully bloom. The daily event is designed to allow guests from overseas to experience Japan's custom of viewing cherry blossoms. (The dates of the event may change according to circumstances.)
Hotel staff will guide guests to cherry blossom-viewing spots around the hotel, explaining the different types of the flower species. Among the locations, guests will see a view symbolizing Tokyo in spring at Zojoji Temple, where cherry blossoms rival nearby Tokyo Tower. Staff will also show interested guests how to enjoy food stalls set up at the temple’s site. Guests at Shiba Park Hotel are welcome to join the event without any fee.

“The period for enjoying Japan's famed cherry blossoms is only about one week of the year. I hope you will take advantage of this event to enjoy the beauty of Japan's spring and blooming cherry blossoms.”
Japanese Culture Salon SAKURA Manager Yuka Inoue said:
