Coming to Japan mid April to Early May and worried that you may have missed all the beautiful cherry blossoms? No worries! Cherry blossoms bloom at different timing at different locations, therefore you can enjoy cherry blossoms still! This is because cherry blossom blooming really depends on the proximal weather and temperature.

From mid April until early May, Tohoku region will be the place to go.

Check out some of the recommended location for cherry blossom viewing!


Hanamiyama Mountain, Fukushima (Mid April – Late April)

One of the most famous location within Fushima is definitely Hayamiyama Mountain! It used to be privately owned, however with the owner willing to share the beautiful cherry blossoms, it opened up to public 1960s. How about being surrounded by cherry blossoms 360 degrees?
