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.

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.
