If you are unable to visit Japan for its beautiful cherry blossoms in March and April, there is still a chance for you to see the cherry blossoms while joining this tour. Hokkaido is the northernmost and coldest of Japan's four main islands, so the cherry blossoms bloom later there than anywhere else. This tour is designed to visit the Central and Southern areas of Hokkaido when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom in this area in late April and early May, followed by an exciting extension into the Ibaraki, Tochigi and Nagano regions, with some of the most enchanting Japanese flower festivals you can find in late spring.

Hakodate, which located in the southern part of Hokkaido, has a very unique park - Fort Goryokaku. This star-shaped former fortress was the last bastion of samurai military influence before Japan was opened to international trade, and is now one of Japan's most recognizeable public parks, known for over a thousand cherry trees scattered around grounds. Matsumae also has a public park which is well-known region for its especially lovely cherry blossoms in spring. Located around impressive Matsumae Castle, this park is a good place to watch the pastel pink petals fall as you dream of living during in the era of samurai, especially when you stroll around nearby Matsumaehan Yashiki - a historical recreation of the town of Matsumae during the feudal Edo period.

The tour includes an opportunity to admire the rural countryside and small town lifestyle of Furano and Biei, as well as a stop Otaru - a fishing port famed for its vintage canals, glass-blowing industry, and quality sushi. We take a couple of days in Sapporo, capital city of Hokkaido prefecture. In the center of the city is Odori Park where many different plants and trees were planted. Strolling around the park is pleasant as you will have the opportunity see which flowers are in season. Sapporo Clock Tower stands at one end of the park, with a clock imported from Boston, USA and a museum inside detailing the city's history. The tour also explores the Susukino entertainment district, and the Hokkaido Historical Village, an open air museum with old buildings from the Meiji and Taisho Eras.

The last five days of the tour brings you some of the most captivating floral scenes to be witnessed in late spring, starting with a trip to the Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki, where the grassy hills are covered with millions of dainty baby blue eyes flowers in what the region calls its "Nemophila Fantasy". Then venture into Tochigi for the Great Wisteria of Ashikaga flower park. The Great Wisteria is a tree that is over 250 years old and hung with bright purple flowers; it is surrounded various other wisteria with white, yellow, and red blooms. Finally, the Fuji Shibazakura Festival is the perfect time for viewing carpets of shibazakura "phlox moss" near Lake Motosu, in the Fuji Five Lakes region. This final leg of the tour also takes you to some of the local cultural treasures, including Matsumoto Castle, Nagano's Zenkoji Temple, and Kariuzawa Shiraito Falls.
