Hoshino Resorts OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka invites to "OMO Everything Sakura Festival"
- OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka
From March 1st to April 19th 2020, Hoshino Resorts OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka, an urban tourism hotel where guests can fully experience the town of Otsuka, will host the “OMO Everything Sakura Festival” for visitors to enjoy sakura (cherry blossoms) to their heart’s content at the birthplace of the Somei-yoshino cherry
blossom. Guests can enjoy the artificial cherry blossom flowers décor in the hotel, and the cherry blossom themed desserts made in collaboration with local businesses. The tour run by the local guides of the hotel, “OMO Rangers,” will also be changed to the “Sakura Tour” for a limited time. Using their deep knowledge of Otsuka, the Sakura Rangers can show guests the best cherry blossom viewing spots. Come and enjoy viewing the cherry blossoms at OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka, located in Toshima, the birthplace of the Somei-yoshino cherry blossom.
The ward of Toshima, where OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka is located, is actually the birthplace of the Somei-yoshino cherry blossom. It is thought by some that the Somei-yoshino was created through selective breeding by the horticulturists of Edo Castle, in a place today called Somei. Owing partially to this history, the area around OMO5 Tokyo Otsuka is home to many cherry blossom viewing spots, such as the streets lined with Someiyoshino trees, or Asukayama, long known as a great place to view the cherry blossoms. The OMO Everything Sakura Festival was created here, out of the desire to see as many people as possible enjoy these special cherry blossoms.
