Japan Cherry Blossom Season
There is something quite magical about the Japan Cherry Blossom Season that can only be explained in photos until you experience it first hand. There are so many photos on the internet that don’t give justice to the infamous Cherry Blossom Trees and the amount spotted throughout the country are incredible. You really need to add this trip to your bucket list. I was lucky enough to hit the timing perfectly and caught the full bloom in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Nara. I did a lot of research on dates, and created my own guide here which worked perfectly. Below are some of my favorite photos that I would love to share with the world.
Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden
One of my favorite spots in Japan for Cherry Blossom season. There are over a 1,000 trees in the park, but this by far is my most favorite shot.
Beautiful Cherry Blossom spotting along the canal in Nakameguro. Around full bloom time they light up the trees and there are food and drink vendors. People drink, eat, walk around, and enjoy the scenery.
Surrounding the moats of the Edo castle this is an amazing site to see. It was definitely a trek to get to this area as you need to walk far from the train station to spot the area. I was too exhausted to get the money shot view, but I was pretty impressed from this angle.
One of my favorite areas in Kyoto, Gion District has some of the best Japan Cherry Blossom spots. I love this pathway because the cherry blossoms were a display of absolute perfection. There are some little cafes you can sit at and admire the views here.
This is a great area to stroll around for a few hours or grab a blanket and sit under on of the fabulous trees. The cancel is literally lined with perfect cherry blossom trees.
Spend a day in Nara park during Japan Cherry Blossom Season for a magical experience. I got so many great shots of the deer I forgot there were temples to visit!
Spotted some amazing Cherry Blossom Trees around the Great Hall of Buddha. The best part of this photo is not only the amazing tree at full bloom, but the bird that I got in the shot.
