Tokyo Mito Kairaku-en Plum Festival

20 of February - 31 of March, 2010

Ume (Asian plums) blossoms can be viewed from early February until March in Japan. The beauty of White or pink ume blossoms are widely observed in gardens, parks, shrines and temples, and more. One of the best festivals to celebrate this spring event - Mito Kairaku-en Plum Festival - is annually held in Tokyo. Between the 20th of February and 31st of March, 2010 you can enjoy this particular festival in most beautiful gardens in Japan.

The Japanese plum or ume has played an important role in Japanese culture for many centuries. The plum is associated with the start of spring. Japanese tradition holds that the Ume functions as a protective charm against evil. In addition, eating of the pickled fruit for breakfast is also supposed to stave off misfortune. Enjoy the flavour of the spring in Tokyo. There are about 25,000 resplendent Japanese apricot trees usually in full bloom on the day!

Kanbai Shimin Matsuri or Ume blossom festival is full of entertaining events and programs, including a parade, hayashi festival music presentations, local performing arts presentations, traditional outdoor tea ceremonies, koto live concerts and more. The city will be experiencing its annual rebirth - prepare to celebrate with all the nation. Enjoy this unique celebration of the city and nature together.

All in all, spring in Tokyo is not only an amazing experience for the tourists but also has a therapeutic effect on you. The weather is mild to warm – perfect for visiting temples, sitting out on the beaches and being surrounded by nature. They are a sight to behold and worth timing of your visit! Just relax and enjoy!
