Cherry blossoms at night look very different. We call it 'Yozakura' in Japanese, which means something like 'Night Cherry Blossoms.' We Japanese love seeing the cherry blossoms lit up at night just as much as we love to party under the blossoms in the daytime.
There are over 800 cherry trees standing alongside the Azuma River and it's all lit up during the cherry blossom season so you can enjoy Yozakura! Seeing the cherry blossoms under the lantern lights is very beautiful and so is the reflection in the river below. So if you're in the area, now is the time to go!
The Yozakura lights will be up until April 14th from 6-11pm.
