TRAVEL: Tokyo in Spring 2023

Spring is the most awaited season in Japan simply because the blooming sakuras and other flowers are quite a lovely sight. Of course, most tourists prefer to see actual cherry blossoms and most will flock to Ueno or Meguro or Shinjuku Parks. Also, spring is a nice time to explore Tokyo because of the cool weather. 

Luckily, we booked our trip a week ahead of the forecasted Sakura season in Tokyo. We arrived March 20 and we still got to see the 'early' bloomers in Chidorigafuchi Moat of the Imperial Garden and Ueno Park. Also, being early means less crowded parks.

Parks to visit during Sakura season: 

Chidogarifuchi Moat at the other side of the Imperial Palace in Tokyo. During spring season, both locals and tourists flock here because of the scenic view of cherry blossoms surrounding the moat. Aside from that, there's also the East Gardens with lots of different hued sakuras and other flowering plants.

HOTEL REVIEW: Tokyo W-Inn Asakusa

We discovered Tokyo W-Inn Asakusa via when we were searching for a place to stay in Tokyo. Our first criteria when choosing a hotel is that it should be near the train station, and near a temple/shrine. And we got some bonus also because we got to experience being surrounded by locals as the hotel itself is in a residential area, that being our second criteria. Not to mention there are more than several convenience stores around the hotel, and grocers and restaurants.
