Inokashira Park (井の頭恩賜公園) is a 43-hectares park located on the western side of Tokyo, which sits on both Mitaka and Musashino cities. It is easily accessible via the lively Kichijoji neighborhood. The park’s large pond is one of the favorite sakura spot in Tokyo with its 250 cherry trees lining up its banks.
The warmer weather over the past few days lead to the blossoming of sakura buds. The trees around the pond were 50-70% in bloom and looked very pretty.
