Plum Blossom Festival, Setagaya, Tokyo, JapanMore than 650 plum trees blossom in Setagaya’s Hanegi Park between early February and early March for the Plum Blossom Festival.

The first 55 plum trees were planted in Hanegi Park in 1967. Many more followed in the next couple of decades. Currently, the park is home to 650 plum trees: 270 red flowering plum trees and 380 white flowering plum trees.

This year’s dates are February 11, 2023, through March 5, 2023. (Setagaya is a special ward in Tokyo, Japan.)

Traditional performances (koto sessions, haiku classes, tea ceremonies) are held in the park and at the weekends there are also stalls selling refreshments and plum foods.
