Hanami: Late Start
Cherry blossoms got a late start this year. The season is about a week and a half later than it has been in the past few years.
The cherry blossoms right now are at about 20 to 30% bloomed. Mountain and hillsides are turning a light shade of pink.
If you wish to see a mix of cherry blossoms and cherry blossom buds, now’s a good time to go. If you wish to see them in full-bloom, mankai, this weekend would be the best time to go.
