It is still the first week of February but we have found some Sakura trees already opens their first blooms here and there in Tokyo.
Tokyo’s cherry blossoms usually start blooming in mid-late March, and there are so many Sakura spots and festivals taking place in and around Tokyo.
If you are planning to visit Japan for the coming months, please do not miss this beautiful time of year.
The temperature this winter has been relatively higher so the Sakura might start blooming earlier than expected.
Visiting a famous parks is also a good idea but discovering some hidden sakura spots on your own is also fun!
In case you struggle finding a good place for cherry blossom viewing, why don’t you check with us. We can recommend some quieter but still very nice places to visit with your young children.
Hope to see you here in Tokyo in March!
