Tateyama Park Cherry Blossoms 立山公園の桜
Dream of spring in pink and white
Tateyama Park lies on terraced hills overlooking Nagasaki . This perenially popular picnic spot transforms into a vision of pale pink during spring's cherry blossom season and is ideal for celebrating hanami.
How to Get There
The park is easily accessible by bus.
Depart from Shinchi Bus Terminal or JR Nagasaki Station. The journey takes about 15 minutes depending on traffic.
Watch as the cherry trees bloom
Watch as one by one some 700 Cherry blossoms come into bloom, bathing the park in soft pinks and whites.
Pink lanterns are strung up from tree to tree, illuminating the already wistful blossoms.
Hanami, the act of eating and drinking under the cherry blossoms, is a quintessentially Japanese experience. Grab some food from the local convenience store or one of the onsite food stalls and set yourself up under the comforting canopy of the cherry blossoms.
With the park open 24 hours and the lanterns to illuminate your way, you can continue your stay well through the night. From the end of March to the beginning of April, when the blossoms are in full bloom, food stalls are set up all around the park. Sample your way through and find your own favorite festival food while enjoying the atmosphere.
