Japanese people are very interested in aesthetics and beautiful things. Japanese people travel long distances to see beautiful places. Luckily, cherry blossoms are everywhere in Japan, so we don`t have to go far to see it, but the season is very short, so you`ll have to be really lucky as it`s difficult to plan a trip at the perfect time. Every year the cherry blossoms bloom at different times. They start blooming from the southern most part of Japan and it works it`s way north. The first stop is Okinawa.
Okinawa - mid January
Kyushu - mid March to the end of March
Kansai - the end of March
Kanto/Tokyo - the end of March to Early April
Hokaido - the end of April
Again, theses dates are guidelines and will vary from year to year.
Japan National Tourism Organization has a really good site about cherry blossoms. Be sure to check it out here
Japanese people like to sit under the cherry blossom trees and enjoy the beautiful scenery while eating lunch and drinking alcohol. Be sure to go early for famous spots.
