Plan for 2022 Sakura Season in Japan
As winter sets in, it’s time to start planning for the pink and ivory colors of spring in Japan.
Much like the warmth of spring itself, cherry blossoms bloom from south to north starting in late March in Kyushu. In Tokyo, travelers can expect the fleeting sakura petals to be blooming and falling in April, continuing into May in Hokkaido, Japan’s most northerly main island. Each year, the Japan Meteorological Corporation releases a cherry blossom forecast, so contact Remote Lands to learn the best time for you to visit.WHAT TO DO?
Individual cherry blossoms bloom for about a week, so it’s essential to make the most of the experience. Travelers can wander around the moat of the Imperial Palace, stroll down Cherry Blossom Lane in Osaka, and have a picnic beneath the falling petals in Nara. Throughout the country, sakura flavored treats can be had in almost every form. Cherry blossoms are everywhere in Kyoto — canals, parks, temples — so enjoy some of the finest viewing anywhere in Japan, particularly from the preserved streets of wooden houses in south Higashiyama leading up to Kiyomizu-dera. From sundown, cities like Tokyo and Kyoto illuminate their cherry trees to allow for after-dark flower viewing, taking full advantage of the short-lived season. These are called yozakura —cherry blossoms at night.WHERE TO STAY?
