Cherry Blossom Tours

An ephemeral vision of spring loveliness, the delicate cherry blossom is arguably the most universally recognizable of Japan’s national icons.

The blossoming of the cherry tree, or “sakura”, is the herald of spring in Japan. While not Japan’s national flower, is by far the one most universally identified with the national culture. In the Japanese mind, the sakura cherry tree represents not only springtime, but is commonly associated with loveliness in general. Visions of the pastel pink flowers as they sprout from the branches, blush under the sun, and gracefully fall to earth have inspired the art, music, philosophy, and even cuisine of Japan for centuries. The cherry blossom is firmly fixed in the mind of the Western world as a Japanese icon and brings tens of thousands every year to witness its fleeting beauty. Beloved for transience as much as its charm, the cherry blossoms are only viewable for a couple weeks in early spring (maybe only a week at full bloom) before the wind and rain carry them gently to the ground. Late March to early April are the ideal times for most of Japan, although the cherry blossoms of Hokkaido flower and fall as late as early May, on account of the northernmost prefecture’s long winter.
