Meet your guide at the Keio Plaza Hotel in the morning and board a comfortable coach, driving through a cherry tree–lined boulevard in Kunitachi en route to your first stop: Showa Memorial Park (officially, Showa Commemorative National Government Park). On arrival, stroll for 1.5 hours with your guide through a grassy area featuring 200 cherry trees in bloom, and visit the Japanese garden and bonsai garden.

Take a break from sightseeing to enjoy a Japanese-style lunch in Western Tokyo, known as the Tama area.

Then re-board your coach and head to the Tokyo Tower Main Observatory to take in panoramic city views from the nearly 500-foot-tall (150-meter) tower. On a clear day, you can even see Mt Fuji in the distance. If you'd like, your guide can show you nearby Zojoji Temple where more cherry blossoms bloom.

Next up is Chidorigafuchi and Kitanomaru Park, where more than 1 million visitors arrive each year to view some 260 blossoming trees. Following the promenade at a section of the Imperial Palace, stroll through the tunnel of blossoms and observe reflections of the trees and bright blue rowboats on the water. Near the northern end of Kitanomaru Park, you’ll get great photo ops of the cherry trees that grow near the oldest remaining gate of the Edo Castle compound, which dates to 1636.

Alternatively, depending on blooming conditions and time of season, your guide accompanies you to Shinjuku Gyoen, a large park that was originally laid out in 1772 as part of the residence of a feudal lord. The current configuration of the gardens was completed in 1906 for the Imperial Palace and rebuilt after the destruction of World War II. The garden features 1,300 cherry trees of 65 different varieties and is a favorite spot for hanami.

After roughly an hour at either location, say farewell to your guide at Tokyo, Shinjuku or Asakusa station and make your own way to your next destination.
