  • The cherry blossom, or "sakura," is a Japanese icon that adorns the trees every springtime.


  • These famous flowers attract droves of international admirers eager to see these beautiful flowers for themselves, and often picnic under the pretty pedals in a practice called "hanami."


  • The sakura season surely is a must-see, yet among the most common questions for those visiting Japan in springtime is, when is the best time to see the cherry blossoms?


  • Well, allow us to fill you in.


  • First off, it's important to point out that the timing of the cherry blossoms each year is heavily determined by the temperature, with warmer years seeing the blossoms bloom as much as two weeks earlier than in cooler years.

    お伝えすべきことがあります。毎年、桜のタイミングというのは、かなり気候に影響されます。暖かい年は涼しい年に比べて、2 週間も早く桜が咲くということです。

  • Because Japan stretches across so many lines of latitude, the blossoms can bloom as early as January in the southern islands and as late as May in the far north.

    なぜなら、日本は長く伸びていて、桜の開花は南の島では早くて 1 月、北のでは遅い所で 5 月などバラバラです。

  • At any specific location the typical duration of the blooming period is about 7-10 days given ideal weather conditions, but this can be shortened by strong wind and rain, which can cause the pedals to fall sooner.

    通常、典型的な開花の期間は 7 日間から 10 日間で、それも理想的な天気の状態の間のみで、強い風や雨で短くなる可能性もあります。そうなると、花びらはもっと早く散ってしまいます。

  • With so many variables at play, for the purposes of this video, we'll be using the annual average timing in each area for when the trees look their best.


  • Alright, let's go to the map and get specific.


  • The first cherry blossoms appear in the southern islands of Okinawa and Kagoshima prefectures in late January to mid-February.

    最初の桜の開花は南の島、沖縄や鹿児島県で 1 月の後半から 2 月の中旬です。

  • As for Japan's main islands, Kyushu and Southern Shikoku are usually the first to see the peak of the cherry blossom season around late March, with most of Japan's major cities typically following a few days later and entering their best-viewing period in early April including Tokyo, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka, and Hiroshima.

    日本の本島に関しては、最初に九州と四国の南で 3 月の下旬ごろに桜の開花がピークを迎えます。それから、日本の主要な都市が数日後に咲き始め、名古屋、京都、大阪、そして広島などで 4 月の初旬に見頃を迎えます。

  • It's worth noting that despite being located at a higher latitude Tokyo's blossoms develop a couple of days ahead of those in Kyoto and Osaka.


  • From these southern urban centers, the cherry blossom 'front' sweeps northeast along the Sea of Japan through Kanazawa and also into areas of higher elevation in the center of the country like Nagano and the Fuji Five Lakes Region.


  • Continuing northward, much of the Tohoku region looks its best in mid-April, with the northern tip of Honshu seeing its best-viewing period in at the end of the month.

    東北地域は見頃が 4 月の中旬で、本州の先端ではその次の終わりに見頃を迎えます。

  • It typically isn't until early May that Hokkaido starts to celebrate the sakura, when Sapporo comes alive with color and festivities.

    一般的に、北海道で桜が見られるのは、5 月の上旬までありません。その頃、札幌は色づいてきて、賑やかになります。

  • The final places to enjoy the season are the eastern and northern areas of Hokkaido, where the blossoms typically enter their optimum state around mid to late May.

    桜を楽しむ最後の場所は、北海道の東部と北部地域で、一般的に桜が見頃を迎えるのは、5 月の中旬から下旬頃です。

  • This quick look at when the cherry blossoms bloom, we're just scratching the surface.


  • Nevertheless, hopefully this video helps you plan a more enjoyable, sakura-filled trip to Japan.
