Dreaming of Sakura coming soon

 

There is alternative way of viewing Sakura, Yozakura,

 Pale pink Sakura with blue sky will give us gorgeous feeling. It is really impressive. However there is alternative way of viewing Sakura, Yozakura. Yozakura literally means night Sakura, Pale pink sakura with black sky is breathtaking. Especially when lighted up, it will give you mystical and fascinating beauty as if we were in dream. To tell the truth my first dating was Yozakura viewing.  =(^.^)=  I assure it will be so romantic.

Here are some pictures of last year.

 Some tips for Yozakura viewing.

  • It is better to  bring light jacket. Even though it is already spring, it may be cold sometimes during the nighttime.
  • Not every place is lighted up. I think it is not good idea to visit cemetery like Aoyama or Yanaka at night. I can tell you where the best place is for Yozakura during  my Tokyo History Express tour.

By the way according to the weather forecast the start of cherry blossom will be delayed a bit due to the cold weather this week. Now they forecast Sakura will start blooming on March 25 and get full in bloom in a week.

 PS

According to the weather forecast today (March 16), Sakura will start brooming on March 23 even if we expect a bit cold weather before that,

“ Our Tokyo tour with Mack - Simply the BEST ”

Excellent
1 week ago Traveler: Kim -   Tour Guide: Mack

To put it simply, booking a tour with Mack was the best thing we could have done! We spent two days under Mack’s expert guidance and visited many wonderful sights of Tokyo by foot and rail. Mack taught us how to use the subway and JR lines which set us up beautifully for the rest of our trip to Hiroshima and Kyoto which we did on our own. Mack sent us a well prepared itinerary before we ar...

“ Mack is the best ”

Excellent
3 weeks ago Traveler: Sumant -   Tour Guide: Mack

Mack picked us up from our Airbnb and took us around Tokyo. He came up with a plan to optimize the day we had and completed everything. But most importantly he showed us how to use the subway system to get around in Tokyo. He also planned our trip to Mt Hakone and sent it in writing giving us clear instructions. I would ask Mack for help anytime.

“ To Tokyo and Beyond ”

Excellent
1 month ago Traveler: Anna -   Tour Guide: Mack

It was a pleasure to have Mack as our tour guide in Tokyo. As first timers in Japan, we had little idea on how we can maximize our stay in Japan. Even if we just booked him for only one and a half day, Mack had been indeed, very helpful in every step of the way. He would go the extra mile to make sure that we take the right train, always updating us and concerned of our whereabouts throughout our...

We had a fantastic experience with Mack. He is very knowledgeable, helpful and showed us some great hidden gems that we would not have otherwise seen. He created a perfect 6 hour tour including temples and shrines in Yanesen, a great ramen lunch and a tour and happy hour in the district we were staying in Kaguruzaka. I also enjoyed the historical context that Mack gave along the way, very interest...

“ Enlightening Japanese History ”

Very Good
6 months ago Traveler: Cristina -   Tour Guide: Mack

The tour provides an in depth information of Japanese history which was quite enlightening. We visited the Asakusa Temple, Ueno Park, Meiji Shrine, Imperial Palace and the Tokyo Metropolitan Gov't Building. It was a long tour but well worth the time and effort in 7 hours. We also experienced riding the Tokyo subway and train system which was quite an eye opener. We would be lost without Mack, ...

“ For the Best "Hidden Gem" Tour of Tokyo -- Pick Mack! ”

Excellent
6 months ago Traveler: Neil -   Tour Guide: Mack

Mack gave us a first class tour of Tokyo. We wanted to avoid the tourist traps. We wanted a "Hidden Gem" tour -- and we got it! Mack took us to some very unusual places. We joined a Buddhist ceremony (drums and all). We wandered through narrow streets in old neighbourhoods of Tokyo surrounded by wooden homes. We had a traditional tea ceremony in one of these homes. And -- we visited some unique ar...

Really well organized tour and well timed so we could fit in everything Mack planned for the day. Mack even went to the trouble of doing a pre visit to the fish markets to ensure we could get front row for the Tuna cutting.

Thanks Mack!

“ A fantastic day ”

Excellent
8 months ago Traveler: Justine -   Tour Guide: Mack

Mack was recommended to us so we decided to book a day with him and we are so pleased we did. With an allergy to msg and seafood, Mack worked hard to find somewhere suitable for lunch. We had an informative day off the beaten track, seeing a side of Japan that tourists don't usually see. Mack showed us the most wonderful little eateries, shrines, temples, ancient tablets and provided us with a tho...
