Gay Cherry Blossom Tour!

Some people won’t go to Japan unless they can see the famous cherry blossoms, and once you see them, you will understand! The Sakura (cherry blossom) season is typically April, but can be as early as late March and stretch to early May, depending on which city you are visiting. 

According to the Japan Meteorological Corporation (JMC) cherry blossom forecast, Sakura will arrive a week earlier than usual this year.

The forecasts also indicate that cherry trees will be in full bloom in Kochi and Tokyo on March 27, Fukuoka on March 29, Kyoto/Osaka/Hiroshima/Wakayama on April 1, Kagoshima on April 5, Aomori on April 27, and Sapporo on May 5.
