The wave of pale pink flowers is gradually washing from south to north across the archipelago, and Tokyoites have started "hanami" under blooming trees. This weekend, Ueno Park hosts a cherry blossom festival featuring number of booths offering food, drinks and souvenirs. Meanwhile, people make a long line (for over 1 hour or even longer) to rent a boat for viewing cherry blossoms along the moat of Chidorigafuchi. Please join us for the “Hanami day tour” to cover some of the best places for cherry blossoms in Tokyo.
Below is the latest cherry blossom forecast (sakura calendar 2019) released on March 28 by the Japan Weather Association. They are the expected dates of blooming.
!! It is important to note that temperatures, rain and wind may affect the cherry blossom period across Japan. The dates largely depend on the weather during the last few weeks before blooming. We will be tracking the progress of the cherry blossom front.
