The cherry blossoms had just arrived and the residents and tourists are out in numbers. But that didn't take away from the beauty of this park. If you walk a little further to the back, it's peaceful, calm and completely restores your sense of peace.

Quite possibly the best park we saw the cherry blossom season on our travel. A lovely way to see the locals celebrate the season with parties and great food. A great experience especially at sunset. A must do.

If you’re into shopping, parks, and the energy of a city, visit Maruyama Park. I recommend visiting during both the day and night. Admission is free to the park. If you visit at night, it’s quiet and romantic with the lanterns lit up. During the...More
