In Japan, the most beautiful period is spring in the time of cherry blossoms. Mother Nature pompously dresses up its cities in pink and white to celebrate the end of winter. In Japan, the small petals symbolise the cycle of renewal and rebirth. The phenomenon is so enchanting that the Japanese created their own festival to celebrate and embrace it.
If you want to see this marvellous event, plan your trip well, since the trees only blossom for a few days. Different cities also have different climates so that you can go anytime in between mid-March to mid-April, and you will most likely find cherry trees blossoming in one of the cities of Japan. To be sure about the dates, check the Sakura calendar (cherry blossom in Japanese) for past and predicted blossoming days.
