Japan Cherry Blossom Guide 2019

Each spring, thousands of tourists from different parts of the world would gather in Japan to witness one of its specialties, the cherry blossoms. Locally known as sakura flowers, the cherry blossom season in Japan is an occasion that is just as equally anticipated by the locals as it is for the foreigners. It truly comes to no surprise, the sight of rosy-coloured sakura flowers dangling from the trees, accompanied by the warmer temperatures, create the perfect atmosphere for an outdoor ‘hanami’ with loved ones, a local term for picnic.

It’s important to keep track of the cherry blossom forecast before planning your trip to avoid disappointment. The cherry blossom season commonly occurs from late march to mid April.
