The end of March is marked with spectacular cherry blossom (sakura). Residents of Tokyo enjoy strolling and partying in parks renewed of their cherry blossom, e.g. Imperial palace, Ueno Park, Sumida-river park, etc. But you do not have to go far to enjoy cherry blossom. Around the university’s campus, some cherry blossom spots are worth the visit (see the pictures at the left).
