Every day while the cherry blossoms  are in bloom around Matsumoto Castle, guests who visit the castle in the evening will be treated to the sight of illuminated cherry trees. Entry into the interior garden of the castle is free for this event, and hot miso soup with pork (tonjiru) and sweet rice dumplings will be available for purchase. There’s also Japanese tea and seating available for ¥500, making it easy to sit and relax and enjoy an unusual flower viewing experience. Performances of the Japanese koto, the flute, and classical gagaku music will also be held each night.
