Flower gardens rich with the lovely scent of roses
 
The season of fresh green foliage is also when various spots in Tokyo bloom with the vibrant colors of roses. In Chofu, Jindai Botanical Gardens host the annual Spring Rose Festa, and on weekends open their doors in the early morning when roses are most fragrant. They also organize a variety of events around the theme of roses, like concerts in the rose garden, guided tours, morning tours for enjoying the aroma of the different roses (by reservation only), and lectures titled “The World of Old Roses.”
