There’s no such thing as being too busy to enjoy the cherry blossom season: even if you can’t make it out to one of Tokyo’s best sakura-viewing spots, it’s still possible to take in the spring vibe simply by strolling the streets around your office or school. If you happen to spend most of your weekdays in the Roppongi area, the Mori Building’s new Sakura Map will come in handy: it points out all the most impressive trees from Jingu Gaien in the northwest to Zojoji Temple in the southeast, including sakura hidden between the area’s many office blocks and concrete complexes.

Compiled by Mori’s neighbourhood experts, the map covers all varieties of cherry blossom trees, including ones that burst into bloom after the iconic somei-yoshino have already started dropping their petals. Try loading it up on your phone and spend your lunch break on a quick sakura stroll in Roppongi. And if you’re in the mood for even more pink partying, make sure to drop by Roppongi Hills or Ark Hills this weekend for their respective Spring and Sakura festivals.
