Visit Date: 04/02/2015 (Best Time: early April)

Aoyama Cemetery (青山霊園) is Japan’s first public cemetery. The straight road leading to the cemetery is lined up by hundreds of cherry trees. The area may be associated with the dead but observing the blooming cherry trees from a cemetery provides a unique experience.
