Unknown cherry blossom spot

I passed by the National Theater today.

From quite a distance, I saw beautifully blooming cherry trees.

As I walked up to the tree, I saw many people surrounding it and taking pictures.

National Thestre

The National Theatre of Japan was built in 1967 to present traditional Japanese arts.

Today, Kabuki( Japanese traditional play) and Bunraku ( Japanese traditional puppet play)were being performed.

Ten different types of cherry trees are planted in the front yard of the National Theatre.

These are offering a variety of colors and petal shapes.

Jindai Akebono

Particularly beautiful are the cherry blossoms called “Jindai Akebono” at the entrance.

It is a little pinker than Someiyoshino, and very pretty.

Jindai akebono trees have been grafted from an original cherry tree that Tokyo presented to USA as a gift in 1912 on the shores of Potomac in Washington, D.C.

You can feel the history of this tree.

There were several other different types of cherry trees that people enjoy them very much.

Why don’t you come to the National Theatre during the cherry blossom season?

There are many hidden cherry blossom viewing spots in Tokyo.

You will find some of them in Japan!
