How to enjoy cherry blossom season in Japan

Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) is the most popular Japanese flower. We call this attractive flower "Sakura" as a general term, but do you know there are more than 600 types of Sakura flower in Japan?

Here is the 6 most loved Sakura guide for you. Which one is your favorite Cherry Blossom?


Cherry Blossom is not just about "viewing", but also "tasting".

The proverb "Bread is better than the songs of birds" is said in Japanese as "Dumplings are better than Flowers" (花より団子 - hana yori dango), and this "flowers" actually indicates Cherry Blossoms.

You see how much Japanese loves dumplings(sweets) compared to flowers (Cherry blossom) historically? You may have known about the famous "Sakura Mochi", but how about Sushi or Soba… ??


Let's see how our writer enjoyed Hanami in Kudanshita, Tokyo. Yasukuni Shrine is one of top 10 of the most popular Sakura viewing places in Tokyo. They have 500 Cherry Blossom trees and about 500,000 people visits for flower viewing yearly. Let's see her recommendations!
