I have never been in the mint but have found the out side to be the best place to see a wide range of Cherry Blossom varieties in full bloom, at the right time of year. You can walk one way though the grounds and cannot walk back against the crowd. Ensure you go to the TOILET before you entre.... More

It was a suitable place for sightseeing and relaxing. The weather was good and we enjoyed it. It is recommended to go there in the beginning of spring for a better scene of cherry blossoms, although we went on the 9th April this year and still missed some of the cherry blossoms.

This place opens up a short pathway for a week in April for viewing of cherry blossoms (not the standard type). The website gives up to date information about the opening dates and times. I visited at night time, about 40 minutes before closing, and it was busy, but not too crowded. I'm not sure what day time is like.... More

We went to Japan mid April, so it was a little late for Cherry Blossom but we lucked out, we were able to go Japan Mint on the last day of the viewing. It was so beautiful, so many different kind and different color of Cherry Blossom. Because it was the last day so it was very crowded. But it... More

Open from Apr 8 - 14, 2016 ! Wonderful cherry blossom viewing with lot of varieties which you hardly see elsewhere ! Just too crowded and open for two week ! Need to check their website for opening date as well as route (entry and exit on single direction, to easy flow of crowd) !

One of life's hidden gems. The gardens by the river are a delight, even more so when cherry blossom is out. Well signed in English various points if interest. Superb museum, well layed out over two floors. Sadly all signs in Japanese but well worth a visit.

The mint is wonderful to see the Cherry Blossoms it only opens for about two weeks a year usually at the end of March beginning of April, this is a wonderful and beautiful place to see there are also lots of stalls along side the river seeking food and gifts.

I was lucky to be there at the right moment to admire the cherry blossom. It is uncredible to see so many different types of beautiful flowers.

We didn't visit the Mint, but we took full advantage of the week when they open up their gates for everyone to meander along the long path admiring their extensive range of late blooming cherry blossoms. If you are in town at the right time, go and visit during the day and at night. A bit of a walk from... More

Travellers who missed the peak sakura season or want to experience more of the beautiful flowers can visit the Japan Mint for late-blooming varieties. Entry is also free! There are multiple kinds which provide many opportunities for photos. There is limited English information, but the flowers speak for themselves. The place can get very crowded; an early visit is recommended... More
