For any Yokohama Cherry Blossom Photo Tour, Minato-Mirai’s famous ‘Sakura-dori’ or Cherry Blossom Road is a must see. And on the long leisurely walk, you will have numerous opportunities to capture the cherry blossoms with the cityscapes of Yokohama and its port in the background for panorama style photos. If you prefer close up macro shots, then you can find different varieties of cherry blossoms to suit your photographic preference. Sakura-dori was constructed with photographers in mind as there are many viewing spots that present the opportunity to capture that once in a lifetime cherry blossom photo.
A few short kilometers away is the Ookagawa River. There are hundreds of sakura trees lining the riverside, and they extend so far that it almost appears as if they are a tunnel of sakura for your enjoyment. No matter where you point your camera, you will see the brilliant, lustrous blossoms ready to be photographed. If you prefer to be amidst the blossoms on an ‘Ohanami’ or Cherry Blossom Viewing Cruise, that is another perspective and experience you can enjoy on this Cherry Blossom Viewing Tour.
Sankeien Garden is separated from the other two Yokohama locations, but Japan Dreamscapes has saved the most traditional location for last. Sankeien Garden is most spectacular destination for cherry blossoms due to the historical buildings that call the garden their home. During the blue hour, you may see the reflection of the natural, pink perfection of the cherry blossoms in the pond at the center of the garden. With the buildings behind the sakura as your photographic frame, you will have pictures and memories of your Japan Cherry Blossom Tour that will last forever. As a parting treat, you could enjoy the flavorful sakura ice cream for one last sweet impression of your time photographing Japan’s iconic bloom.
