As you walk under the gate to the inner garden approaching the center of Rikugien, you will find the marvelous figure of the huge weeping cherry tree. This shidarezakura puts on faint pink blossoms on every inch of its branches in the end of March. The sight of the tree with rich blossoms resembling a waterfall is truly overwhelming.
The glamour of the illuminated Daimyo Garden is more than words, and the light-ups of sakura in spring and foliage in autumn is worth having a look.
