Best spots to see cherry blossoms in Tokyo
Season of cherry blossom a.k.a Sakura is nearly coming to Tokyo where regarded as one of the most beautiful places on earth to see the cherry blossoms. According to the forecast, estimated best viewing in Tokyo will be from late March to early April for this year.
Let’s throwback to the trip to Tokyo, Japan in 2017. My aim was to enjoy the Sakura season in Tokyo and it was very lucky for me to be in the most “full-bloom” moment.
I hope this article will help all Local Guides find some good places to take photos of cherry blossoms 🙂
