Top 3 Spots in Japan to view Cherry Blossoms

Cherry blossoms season usually lasts from March to April, there’s nothing better than lying down on the green grass with a picnic basket as we’re watching cherry blossoms blooming beautifully. Triip would like to recommend you these top 3 places for cherry blossoms festivals , and if you happen to be in Japan from March to April, do not miss out on this seasonal occasion! 

  1. Fukuoka: 

Cherry blossom period: 20 March 2016 to 3 April 2016. 

Based on the geographical view, Fukuoka is actually near to Seoul than it is to Tokyo. Sounds a bit off, huh? But anyways, the cherry blossoms here are said to one of the best to view and of course, you can pose lots of pictures here to show your friends and families. In Fukuoka, tonkotsu ramen is also popular so you can feel free to enjoy a boiling hot bowl of ramen while watching the cherry blossoms at Katsumaya Park, where Fukuoka Castle is located.

2. Tokyo: 

Cherry blossom period: 26 March 2016 to 7 April 2016. 

We cannot neglect the capital here aka Tokyo during cherry blossoms season. Head to National Park Shinjuku Gyoen with your cameras  as well, a day spent is gonna be wasted without any pictures taken with the cherry blossoms. And since it’s in downtown Japan aka Tokyo, you can also grab a few light bites and enjoy the view. For couples, cuddle hard under the cherry blossoms!

3. Hiroshima:

Cherry blossom period: 25 March 2016 to 5 April 2016. 

When we mention about Hiroshima, it’s often referred to the bombing apocalypse back in 1945 when World War 2 took place. But it’s also hard to believe that after the war, Hiroshima has grown stronger than ever with prosperity and happiness to the citizens. And of course, the cherry blossoms in Hiroshima is not something to be missed with its vibrant pinkish tone along the streets.
