The Tohoku region is home to some of the most beautiful natural scenery and ancient shrines, which are especially beautiful in autumn and spring. Join the spring festivities and celebrate the beauty of cherry blossom trees during a Shiogama Hanami Picnic, your chance to enjoy the spring tradition of hanami (cherry blossom viewing parties) at a national treasure, Shiogama Jinja. Enjoy viewing the spring sakura blossoms in the serene grounds of Shiogama Shrine, a temple that’s over 1200 years old! It features its own rare double-flowering variety of cherry blossom trees called Shiogamazakura, also considered a national monument. You’ll arrive at your Shiogama Hanami Picnic with everything already set up and ready to go at a great cherry blossom viewing spot. You can simply relax and enjoy your local bento box lunch beneath hundreds of beautiful, delicate cherry blossoms! Featuring elements of local cuisine and regional ingredients inspired by the season, your Instagram-worthy bento box will feature bite-sized pieces of colorful hanami picnic food. Complete with a glass of local sake or beer, you’ll be able to enjoy the scenery while being hearing a shamisen performance (a traditional three-stringed Japanese instrument) by a local musician! This Shiogama Hanami Picnic also includes a wonderful tea ceremony with wagashi Japanese sweets to finish the hanami lunch experience. Never mind about coordinating heavy bags of food and drink, or traipsing around with a blue tarp trying to even get a picnic spot. Feel free to explore the shrine’s grounds, as there’s no need to fuss around and clean anything up. This hanami picnic is hassle-free and certifiably delicious! You’ll never experience cherry blossoms like during an effortless Shiogama Hanami Picnic, where you’ll also receive a local souvenir to take home with you.
