I arrived there at 8:00 but the parking lot of the park was already full.
But in the cherry blossom season, they have many temporary parking lots.
Parking lot in Shohukuji temple was one of them.
Some security guards led me here.
It took about 5 minutes from here to the entrance of Arakurayama Sengen park by walk.
The fee was 1000 yen per day.
Cherry blossoms of this place was also beautiful!

The front row was the most popular.
But I could take this place easier than I thought.
The use of tripods aren’t allowed between 5:00 ~ 17:00 at the observation deck.
(Cherry blossoms season only.And you can use it at other places.)
So they didn’t take long time to take photo in one spot.
