Sakura Matsuri (Mukaiyama Ryokuchi etc.) | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Toyohashi Station 

[Sakura Matsuri (Mukaiyama Ryokuchi etc.)]

A sakura park loved by citizens, which sees crowds of people late into the night

This hanami event is held in three venues: Mukaiyama Ryokuchi, Toyohashi Park, and Iwaya Ryokuchi, which are the oases of Toyohashi's people. The main venue is Mukaiyama Ryokuchi, where stalls stand side by side under the 1,000 or so sakura trees, and crowds of people gather for hanami. Events that liven up the venue, like the karaoke contests, are hugely popular! The place is filled with thousands of smiles, and the lively atmosphere continues into the night during the illumination period. Toyohashi Park and Iwaya Ryokuchi see about 500 sakura trees bloom, and they offer a spring sentiment with a slightly different flavor.
