The Weeping Cherry Tree in the Japanese Garden of Rikugien

The Weeping Cherry Tree in the Japanese Garden of Rikugien, Tokyo, Japan (B)

Rikugien Garden, a large and beautiful Japanese garden in Tokyo City, is famous for fall foliage. I uploaded many photos of red maple leaves in autumn.

It's the big weeping (drooping) cherry tree! The best days to view it came on 26 March, so I'd like to share it with you.

I upload as many photos as possible, and moreover, a practical sightseeing guide to get there, descriptions of Rikugien Gardens, and other helpful sites.

I uploaded a photo of weeping cherry tree blooming in Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden in Tokyo City last year.

It is a big tree, but the weeping cherry tree in Rikugien Garden is even bigger than it. There are not many weeping cherry trees which are as big as it, so it is very famous.

When you see the cherry blossom post of Shinjuku Gyoen, you might realize that many cherry blossoms haven't reached to the peak when the weeping cherry tree is blooming fully.

Weeping cherry trees bloom some days earlier than the standard cherry blossoms named Someiyoshino. Some cherry-blossom-loving Japanese locals start hanami (sakura viewing) with weeping cherry trees. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
