To help Filipinos planning trips to Japan this spring, Tobu Railways is launching “TOBU SAKURA MATSURI 2017” to share the charm of cherry-blossoms along the railway. As part of this, Tobu Railway has announced a special website to introduce recommended cherry-blossom viewing spots, the best times for seeing them bloom, and facilities offering cherry-blossom sweets, perfect for souvenirs or a quick break during a trip.

The site will also release 360-degree videos of three of the leading cherry-blossom spots in the Kanto area, Sumida Park, Satte Gongendo’s bank of cherry trees, and the sakura trees lining Kawagoe Shingashi River. Viewers can even see the blossoms after they have fully bloomed, allowing viewers to have a realistic cherry-blossom viewing experience, as if they’re actually visiting these famous spots

The special site URL is http://www.tobu.co.jp/foreign/en/cp/sakura. It will be available until April 30 (Sun.), 2017.

Tobu Railway is a major railway covering the Kanto area, spreading out mainly in Tokyo. The railway line connects many charming sightseeing spots crowded throughout the year, including the world’s tallest tower TOKYO SKYTREE, the world heritage location Nikko Toshogu Shrine, which recently finished repair work lasting about 4 years on its newly revitalized Yomeimon Gate, and Kawagoe, an area where classic warehouses built in the kura style still remain to this day.
