Beautiful photos of cherry blossoms in Tokyo, 2023. If you love cherry blossoms (who doesn’t love cherry blossoms?), then springtime is heaven in Japan. You’ll find cherry blossoms in every corner of the country in spring. However, depending on the geographical location of the cities, cherry blossoms may be in full bloom on slightly different days in different cities. Check the cherry blossom forecast (yes, there is a cherry blossom forecast) starting from January of each year and then every 1-2 weeks until full bloom.
The full bloom of cherry blossoms in Japan is incredibly beautiful and likely very different from anywhere else. Cherry blossom trees line streets, rivers, train tracks, and everything in between. They gather in groups of hundreds, if not thousands. Furthermore, many of the cherry blossom sites have lights that illuminate the flowers at night, creating a breathtaking sight to behold and experience. On top of everything, Japan probably has the most varieties on cherry blossom trees than anywhere in the world.
Some of the top sites in Tokyo to see cherry blossoms are: Ueno Park, Shinjuku Gyoen, Chidorigafuchi, Meguro River, and Sumida Park.
