Hanami - Cherry Blossoms in Japan

The hanami season lasts a very long time, from the end of December to May, but it can only be seen a few days at each place in Japan. In the southern islands of the country, where it is very hot, the first sakura flowers are visible from the beginning of winter, towards the end of December. But in the north, in Hokkaido, you have to wait until May to see the cherry blossoms. In the center of the country (Kyoto, Tokyo ...) hanami is celebrated from mid-March to mid-April.
