Oldest Hanami Spot in Japan
Asukayama park (飛鳥山公園, asukayamakouen) is very authentic hanami spot.
Asukayama Park, also known as Oji Park (王子公園, ojikouen), is located at the Kita-ward of Tokyo. It’s famous for sakura trees. The park was created by Edo-era Shogun Yoshimune in early 18th centery. The purpose of the park was just to be a good hanami spot.
Later, in 1873, the park was designated to be one of the first parks in Japan.
Aside sakura, there are many ericaceae and hydrangea in the park, too.
