Cherry Blossom Packages
Japan Cherry Blossom Holiday Packages
Cherry blossoms are called Sakura in Japanese. They are one of the most iconic features of Japan. The beautiful, dainty and pale pink flowers are captivating to both the locals and visitors alike. You will quickly realise that cherry blossoms have different faces in the day compared to night. In the day time, the beautiful flowers will take your breath away, while at night time, the “Yozakura” (cherry blossoms at night), will bewitch you in their fascinating illumination. Discover natural beauty with our Japan cherry blossom holiday packages.
From the middle of March to early May, the “Sakura-zensen”, or “cherry blossom front” makes its way across Japan. The flowering of cherry blossoms follows a line up the map of Japan and announces the coming of spring. Travelling from the south in Okinawa, through the main island of Honshu, to the northern tip of Hokkaido, the cherry blossoms will be blooming proudly.
You can only see cherry blossoms in spring so be sure to treasure every encounter with them and be intoxicated with the beauty of Sakura. This is Mother Nature at her finest.
