Ho-Taiko Hanami Gyoretsu

In the spring of 1598, Toyotomi Hideyoshi had 700 trees of cherry blossoms planted, and Sanboin and its garden built to have a magnificent party, where about 1300 people including Hideyori (his son), wife, and mistresses joined him to enjoy the views.

Modeled after this old event, "Ho-Taiko Hanami Gyoretsu" (Toyotomi Hideyoshi's cherry blossom-viewing parade) is held on the second Sunday of every April. 1000 trees of cherry blossoms blooming here and there in the precinct (world heritage) are spectacular.
