Cherry blossom season is Japan and Tokyo’s most popular time of year. The magic of sakura season is unparalleled to anywhere else in the world. The season typically extends through the first week of April but according to The Japan Meteorological Corporation, cherry blossom season in 2019 is going to start early this year, with full bloom at this point predicated to happen before April.
The numbers above are from the second forecast which predicts that Tokyo will bloom early this year starting at 3/24 and reaching full bloom at 3/31. Now that’s an early season! It’s important to keep checking their website back for later forecasts because the first forecast was actually a couple of days early. Also, the deviation of days is +-2 days on average. See their website for details on more specific deviations as well as their forecasting method.
