Cherry Blossom – Sakura – Season Tokyo 2019
Cherry Blossom Season comes in 2019
Sakura season is synonymous with a vacation to Japan.
Sakura is the Japanese word for cherry blossom. Historically, sakura is most associated with “hanami”, the centuries old Japanese tradition of cherry blossom viewing and picnicking under a blooming sakura tree. The blooming typically lasts just a week and its exquisite but fleeting beauty is often compared to the ephemeral nature of life. Today, you can even find the image of sakura on the back of a 100 yen coin, signifying its importance in Japanese culture. This year’s cherry blossom forecast expects the first petals to open on March 23rd 2019, with the estimated best viewing time between March 30th and April 7th.
Escape to Tokyo and make this year’s holiday a cherry blossom sightseeing one. Accommodation at our hotel during this period is highly limited.
