Many people who visit during the cherry blossom season in Japan plan to visit parks to see these beauties.
But did you know there are plenty of other spots that aren’t as crowded as the popular spots like Ueno Park or Shinjuku Gyoen.

In this concrete jungle, there are plenty of streets that are lined with cherry blossoms and you are bound to find one in almost every neighborhood.
