Cherry Blossom 2017 Schedule is out!
Cherry Blossom (sakura) is a sign that nature is waking up after a cold winter and that spring is on its way. To celebrate the beauty of sakura, the Japanese take part in hanami, which directly translates as ‘flower viewing’. The activity involves hiking through the mountains and walking through parks in search of the cherry blossom blooming on the trees. Families and friends celebrate beneath the cherry trees by enjoying home-made meals and Japanese sake wine. Take advantage of this tradition and book our carefully-crafted Japan itinerary which includes spectacular Tokyo, Mount Fuji, hot springs of Hakone, ancient temples and shrines of Kyoto and Osaka.
