Cherry Blossoms 2007
 
Sakura blossoms, one of Japan's foremost specialties of springtime, can be enjoyed all over the country from the northern tip to the southern islands. The cherry blossom front aka "Sakura Zensen" appears down southwest in mid March and moves north reaching the Tohoku and Hokkaido region in late April. The kinds of sakura that can be enjoyed vary greatly depending on each region and timing. <SAKURA 2007> invites visitors - for all who wish to travel Japan on foot and through the computer screen - to the Japanese seasonal aesthetics, providing information on blossoming forecast, prominent viewing spots and historic trees.
3/28 UPDATE !! < Cherry Blossom Festivals - Northern Japan >
Many of the sakura festivals will begin at late March depending on the blossoming conditions.
