Cherry Blossom viewing

One of the most popular times to visit Japan is in spring, when the famous cherry trees come into bloom all over the country. The first buds generally appear in the last week of March or so and last until the first or second week of April when the final flowers come into blossom. While the end of March and beginning of April is a relatively safe rule of thumb, it is not guaranteed! This spectacular annual sight attracts Japanese and foreigners alike, who flock to witness the streets as they are transformed with delicate hues of pale pink and white. The peak blossom period lasts for approximately two weeks only, so to ensure you make the most of it, we have created this  this itinerary to cover some of the most scenic places in Japan to admire this short but sweet event. Book now for any time from the end of March until mid-April.

Please note that all the guided tours listed in this itinerary will be done with public transport, which is tremendously efficient, convenient and economical in Japan. If you prefer to use private transport, please let us know when you enquire and we can arrange it for you at an additional cost.
