Why not try visiting winter locations in Tokyo’s neighboring Saitama Prefecture’s Chichibu? This area is 3 hours away from Ikebukuro by bus or the Seibu Line. I’ve come to visit the back-country areas of Chichibu, Saitama Prefecture. First off, I stopped to appreciate the artful ice formations!
Mito City's Kairakuen Garden is a famous plum blossom viewing spot. And on weekends during the period of the Plum Blossom Festival you can get from Ueno Station to the temporary Kairakuen Station by special limited express trains "Hitachi" and "Tokiwa" in about an hour.
Every year, the large numbers of people that visit this area are surprised at how many flowers are blooming as early as January! The flowers look like they could be a solid carpet of yellow! Visiting Kamogawa in the early spring to see it covered in rape flowers, and even enjoying picking them, is great fun!
