Cherry Blossom 2017

Hello there,

I'm planning to go to Japan (specifically Tokyo surrounding area) next year (2017). Would you be able to tell me the safest time to enjoy Cherry Blossom ? Is March 30 - April 7 safe ? Looking forward to your reply.

Thank you.


Hi there,

End March - beginning is likely the best way time to go. This has been the period when we've seen the Cherry Blossom in the last couple of years.

I would also recommend getting a JR Pass, this way you are flexible on going around Japan. For instance there may already be Cherry Blossom in Kyoto but not yet in Tokyo.

Hope this helps,
