The special illumination for the cherries will start from the same day and will continue two days longer (10 days).
On April 7th, ‘Sumo road-show in Matsumoto’ will be held again. The last year’s road-show was heated because of a new hero ‘Mitake-umi’ from Kiso in Nagano Prefecture. You might see some sumo wrestlers viewing cherries somewhere after the show if you are very lucky.
- Time: 8 am to 3 pm, Thursday 7th, April
- Venue: Matsumoto City General Gymnasium (Google map)
- Ticket: advance-sale tickets are still being sold. I am not sure but walk-up tickets might be sold from the morning (probably there will be a long line)
