The National Theatre of Japan is in Hayabusacho, Tokyo, overlooking the western moat of the Imperial Palace.
The theatre opened in 1966 following the passing of the National Theatre Act in the National Diet. The theatre comprises two auditoriums.
The National Theater of Japan is one place that has to be seen during the springtime cherry blossom season. There are a couple of dozen cherry trees here, of ten different varieties.
For some reason, they blossom about a week earlier than average - even earlier than the cherry trees around the Imperial Palace, nearby Chidorigafuchi Park, and the Supreme Court, which is right next door to the National Theatre.
The grounds of the National Theatre are buzzing with visitors throughout late March and early April, taking in the exuberant beauty of the pink and white blooms that plump out the normally black, spindly cherry trees.
Enjoy these shots taken over the past 10 days in the grounds of the National Theatre.
