Sumida Park - Tokyo, Japan

Sumida Park is only a short walk from Asakusa Station in Tokyo and features more than 510 cherry trees, lining the Sumida River. Spring sees the cherry blossom when all the trees burst into bloom. Take a stroll along the riverside to enjoy the scent of the myriad of flowers and get great views of Tokyo Skytree. It can get a little crowded, so alternatively take a waterbus along the river to enjoy the sight from the water. Visit at night for an even more majestic scene as the trees are lit up.

Portland, Oregon, USA – ‘City of Roses’

Portland has been labelled the “City of Roses” and for very good reason. The Oregon city’s climate is perfect for cultivating the popular flowers, which start blooming in April and are beautiful right through to June. They are to be seen in all the parks across the city. Visit the International Rose Test Garden to sniff the blooms, or head to the Portland Rose Festival which starts in mid-May and goes on to mid-June, with flower shows, fireworks and parades.
