Japan’s Top 100 Blossoms: Mobara Park (Chiba)
The sakura festival features a range of events, from wadaiko performances and pop concerts to a bazaar and flea market. The sakuras take on a dreamlike quality when they are lit up at night. Incidentally, the park is adjacent to the exclusive Mobara Country Club, where US President Donald Trump played golf with Prime Minister Abe Shinzō in May 2019.
