Spring is the perfect time for traveling in Japan. The weather is very pleasant and Japan is blanketed in stunning shades of pink and white. There is a word in Japanese, sakura zensen, which describes the blossom’s movement from the tip of the southern Japanese islands of Okinawa in early February all the way to the most northerly cape of Hokkaido by the end of May.
I have been asked many times why I have not yet been to Japan, with the answer being that I was just waiting for a time that was right and Cherry Blossom Festival 2017 was the perfect time for me to explore this lovely country. Besides the gorgeous cherry blossom, I’m in awe with Japan’s majestic temples and shrines, zen gardens, lush national parks, and a rich historic culture. In this blog is a list of my top 10 favorite things to do in Japan!
