Updated! Japan Cherry Blossom (Sakura) Forecasts for 2017

Here are the latest Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) forecasts! It’s one of the best times to visit Japan, when all sorts of people relax and drink under the trees. The timings seems to be later than last year, so you may have to wait about a week more for them to start blooming this year.

Try to allow some flexibility in your holiday schedule, as the actual timings can change. If your spot is not in the list below, check the nearest city or use the map to find the approximate timings. Check our homepage for regular updates and reports. More accurate forecasts will come later!
