Hiroshima Mint Cherry Blossom Viewing

10:00am – 8:00pm
Free

Like the head office in Osaka, the Hiroshima branch of the Japan Mint has a garden of late blossoming yaezakura cherry trees.

The garden boasts 63 multi petaled varieties of sakura and 219 trees. Regular old somei yoshino cherry blossoms only have a measly five petals while the varieties at the Hiroshima Mint may have 20 petals.

Make sure you get to the gates half an hour before closing time as admission stops at 7:30pm.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
