Timing is everything if you want to experience Japanese cherry trees in full-bloom. The graceful, pink blossoms only flower for a short time and normally fall to the ground about a week after fully opening. As such, cherry blossoms symbolize the transience, beauty and frailty of human life as well as the arrival of spring. You can expect to see large crowds celebrating the season by picnicking and making merry with colleagues and friends under the blossoming trees. Here’s our list of the top spots in Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara for cherry blossom viewing.
