Shinjuku Gyoen Cherry report

Just after lift-off COVID emergency declaration, I visited Shinjuku Gyoen garden. In the garden I enjoyed varieties of scene of cherry blossom as well as many kinds of cherry varieties.

Somei Yoshino, the most popular variety, was 50%-70% blossom and will be soon full blooming. Earlier blooming variety, like Yoko or Edo higan (weeping) have already past best time.

We can enjoy many interesting varieties collected from all over the Japan. Late blooming, double petal varieties like Ichiyo or Kanzan will be good time one or two weeks, I am looking forward to watching again.

It is still restriction like only booked visitors or with annual pass can enter the garden even after reopening, so many visitors were crowded and confused. I cannot understand such restriction since not so many visitors inside the park or no meaning of closing such open space. I am a little bit worried about confusion in the weekend.
