Spring is my fave season and I believe that spring is best to be enjoyed in Japan with all those blooming cherry blossoms!
I'd totally recommend everyone to come to Japan to see the sakura blooming, once in his/her lifetime just because sakura are simply breathtaking.
Beauty doesn't last forever, so does cherry blossoms. They are only blooming for a week.
So the most important tip to all travelers is to check the cherry blossom forecast before getting tickets! Usually the forecast is out on late February to early March.
Sakura usually blooms around late March to early April. But last year it bloomed 2 weeks earlier, on mid March and leaving disappointment to all the tourists who came late :(
Pictures bellow are how cherry blossoms look like 3 days before they bloom fully.
