This year the Sakura blooming will begin earlier than usual and will last for about 10 days. Those who come at the beginning of April will get to see in the cities close to the sea. Those who will arrive later will still have the chance to catch at the mountain area. Most popular spots are at the Japanese Alps or in the Northern part in the area of Nikko.
If still, you have missed the Sakura, don’t be upset, there will be many other blooming flowers in the following months.
