Cherry Blossom – Sakura – Season Tokyo 2019


Cherry Blossom Season comes in 2019

Sakura season is synonymous with a vacation to Japan.

Sakura season is synonymous with a vacation to Japan. The sakura bloom is symbolic of the start of spring and is thus often heralded as the best time of the year to visit the land of the rising sun. Read on for our definitive guide to all things sakura related, including rituals, events and the meaning behind the sakura blossom.

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.
