Spring in Japan

What is spring like in Japan? Spring highlights a new beginning in Japan, such as a new school year or the first day of work. Many people in Japan celebrate this season of renewal, which consists of cherry blossoms, blooming scenery, and exquisite festivals.

The spring season in Japan is most popularly associated with cherry blossoms (sakura). Sakura is the most renowned flower of the country, and its blooming period is arguably the most sought-after sites to see in Japan. This flourishing season also marks a sense of rebirth. Around this time, particularly in April, many employees start their new jobs and students begin a new school year. Spring is also the best time to relish in Japan's thriving gardens, where you can see tulips, azaeleas, and more. The weather is quite pleasant, but sweaters and cardigans are recommended.

Visiting Japan in March
Visiting Japan in March allows travelers to see cherry blossoms only in certains parts of Japan. During this time, particularly the end of March, the peak of cherry blossoms is primarily in the southern parts of Japan. This includes Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Shikoku, Hiroshima, and Kyushu. Our tour packages take you to the most popular sites in these areas to view sakura. Other areas in Japan experience the cherry blossom season during different times in the spring, beginning in the south before moving to the northernmost part of Japan.

Visiting Japan in April
The graceful period of cherry blossoms continues in Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Shikoku, Hiroshima, and Kyushu during early April. In mid-April, the cherry blossoms begin to bloom in the Japanese Alps area, such as Takayama, Shirakawago, and Kanazawa. Then, in mid to late April, cherry blossoms move to the Nikko and Tohoku area. Finally, Hokkaido experiences the cherry blossom season beginning in late April. Visit Japan in April to see the Miyako Odori, the Takayama Spring Festival, the Wisteria Tunnel at Kawachi Fuji Gardens, and the Great Wisteria at Ashikaga Flower Park.

There are still chances to see the last of the cherry blossoms during early May in Hokkaido, as well as the Wisteria Tunnel at Kawachi Fuji Gardens and the Great Wisteria at Ashikaga Flower Park. From early May to mid-May, visitors can see the increasingly popular Baby Blue Eye Flowers at Hitachi Seaside Park.
