The Cherry Blossoms, known in Japanese as ‘Sakura’ have dazzled the world for centuries and continue to overwhelm visitors and locals. With their radiant, delicate beauty, the sea of soft pink flowers have romanced the Japanese for centuries, so much so, they created a word to symbolise heading outdoors to appreciate them – ‘Hanami’ which translates to ‘looking at flowers’.

More than a beautiful, simple tree, the cherry blossom is a symbol of renewal and hope with powerful ties to Japan’s history, culture and identity. With over 200 different varieties, the wave of pink, which sweeps up the country beginning in March, announces the arrival of spring each year, symbolising human life, transience, and honour.

Across Japan’s diverse landscape, the magical moment of blooming occurs from March to April for a brief period of full bloom. Starting in the sub-tropical south, the blooms sweep up the country, reaching Tokyo and Kyoto in approximately the first week of April, although this can vary depending on the weather. Once in full bloom the Japanese love to celebrate and cherish the enchanting moment by taking strolls and having picnics under the pink petals which gently float to the ground.

Cherry blossom season is now one of the most iconic experiences in the world and the small window of opportunity to visit this astonishing event means places fill up quickly. The best way to experience this fascinating natural wonder is on tour with us. Explore our Japan tours now to ensure you don’t miss out!
