Are you planning to see at least one time in your life for the astounding and blooming sakura and cherry blossom in Japan? The blossom season starts from late March to May every year. It depends which part of Japan you are going to visit. The further north region, the later it blooms. Usually, different areas and different regions will have varies of festival to celebrate the cherry blossom season. If you are planning to go to Japan for an unforgettable trip, you better do some homework and book your award ticket sooner.
There are many sites that are very helpful. I found this site with a lot of Japan Travel Guides. Also, “The Bloom of Cherry Blossoms 2016” gives you a great idea to plan for your dates in 2017. Hope this might assist you in planning your trip. If you have other sites that you want to share, please let us know.
There are 3 different periods for Cherry Blossoms:
- From last week of March to first week of April, cities that are close to Tokyo and Osaka
- From second week of April to Third week of April, cities between Tokyo and Sapporo, like Sandai, Kitakami, Kakunodate, Hirosaki
- From last week of April to first week of May, cities that are close to Hakodate and Sapporo
Remember further north, the blossom will come later in the season.
