Rikugien Shidare-Sakura Lights-Up Event

Rikugien (六義園) is the most beautiful Japanese landscape garden in Tokyo.

The garden was built around 300 years ago.
Rikugien literally means “six poems garden” and reproduces in miniature 88 scenes from famous poems.
The garden is a good example of an Edo Period (A.D. 1603-1868) strolling garden and features a large central pond surrounded by man-made hills and forested areas, all connected by a network of trails.


Shidare-Sakura is a kind of Cherry blossom trees and is characterized by weeping long branches.
