Panorama TOKYO : Takinogawa  

Asukayama Park near JR Oji Station is the famous sights of viewing cherry blossoms, and is very crowded in spring. It would be better to go for a leisurely stroll on the promenade along the Shakujii River, if you want to feel the spring air avoiding crowds or outdoor parties under the cherry trees in the park. You'll be quite satisfied with viewing the blossoms and watching waterfowls on the riverside, here at Takinogawa.

On the first Sunday of April 1999 with the full blossoms, a little sunlight has barely come through the clouds in the afternoon.
