This is a metropolitan cemetery located in Minami Aoyama, Minato-ku, one of the most prestigious areas in Tokyo. It is a place to quietly enjoy the cherry blossoms, as many famous people have been laid to rest.

The best part of the cemetery is the rows of cherry trees that stretch along the road from north to south. The road is narrow enough for cars to pass through, but it is better to walk slowly along the sidewalk to enjoy the cherry blossoms.

Since the area is close to the center of the city, such as Roppongi, it is also quite charming to see buildings such as Roppongi Hills through the cherry blossoms as you walk along the road. Roppongi and Akasaka are just a stone’s throw away.
