Since its completion in 1986 in Minato Ward, ARK Hills, a 24-hour complex that responds to the age of internationalization and information technology, has represented the business district of the 21st century, and seems to be a cutting-edge place to enjoy cherry blossoms.

Visitors can enjoy a variety of plants from season to season in the seven gardens of the “ARK Garden,” where they can get in touch with nature in the heart of the city. The special spring opening of the Roof Garden, which is only open to the public during the cherry blossom season, is not to be missed.

The garden is open to the public only during the cherry blossom season and offers a beautiful contrast to the city center.

Along the perimeter of ARK Hills, there is “Sakura-zaka,” a cherry tree-lined avenue with approximately 150 Someiyoshino cherry trees that create a pale peach-colored, literally cherry blossom-colored tunnel, and cherry blossoms on Spanish Slope, which will provide a pleasant atmosphere for people of all ages and genders.

During the day, visitors can enjoy the gentle beauty of the mountain hydrangeas at the foot of the cherry trees, and at night they are illuminated, so you can enjoy dinner and drinks while viewing the cherry blossoms at night.

The surrounding area is lined with luxury hotels such as the Hotel Okura Tokyo, and is also dotted with major Japanese scenic spots such as the National Diet Building and the Imperial Palace.
