Lighting will be held at 'Ueda-jo Senbon zakura Matsuri (上田城千本桜まつり)' held in Ueda jōshi Kōen (上田城跡公園 / Ueda Castle Ruins Park) every year. About 1,000 Sakura (cherry blossoms) blooming in the park are illuminated by light.
Around 18 o'clock, a lot of people gathered to see the cherry blossoms of night.
Although it is not a very beautiful picture, we are glad if it becomes a reference for your sightseeing.
The sun gently fell down and the lights lighted quietly.

These are few part of many 'Cherry blossoms at Ueda jōshi Kōen (上田城跡公園) Lighting' photos.
From here, there are no explanations for the photographs because we are taking pictures of Cherry blossomsl at random.
The lighting started to illuminated little by little.
The moment the setting sun went down was a very beautiful sight.
Sakura (cherry blossoms) reflected in moats are also beautiful.
photographed on 9 Apr. 2016.
At sunset, it may be better to see the sunset in the Ninomaru area instead of "Higashikoguchi yagramon gate (東虎口櫓門)". You will be able to take a beautiful view of the moat!
The volume of cherry blossoms is amazing!
