2023 Japan Cherry Blossom Blooming Time Forecast
The 2023 Japan cherry blossom forecast has started to be announced, those who are interested in going to Japan to enjoy the cherry blossoms should start looking at dates, booking flights and hotels.
The blooming period usually lasts five to seven days from the start of blooming to full bloom, so it is safer to choose a flight that arrives two days before full bloom based on the location you want to go to, this way you have a higher chance of enjoying the flowers at full bloom.
After booking flights and hotels, don’t forget to apply for “Visit Japan Web” before your trip, to use the fast clearance, quarantine and customs declaration services in Japan.

The table shared by the Japan Meteorological Corporation lists the blooming period of 13 cities and regions. The author has created my own map using all the announced cities. Due to the possibility of changes in the blooming period, the author will also try to update the map to the latest time once there are new announcements or modifications made by Japan.

Hokkaido Cherry Blossom Map
In addition to the nationwide Japan cherry blossom map, Hokkaido’s cherry blossom map is also provided for everyone. This way, it is not necessary to add the nationwide Japan cherry blossom map to my map at once. However, it would be clearer if it is viewed separately.
If you plan to go to Hokkaido to see cherry blossoms in 2023, in addition to the cherry blossoms and fixed landmarks, you can also visit the filming locations of “First Love” for pilgrimage. The author has also compiled a pilgrimage map of filming locations in the “First Love” article. (Updated on 3/16)

There are also many cherry blossom viewing spots in Kyoto, and many famous spots have cherry blossoms to view, so you don’t have to go to other places, which makes it easier to plan your itinerary.
