Japan has four distinct seasons, each with its own appeal, and when planning holidays here it’s best to pick the one that excites you best. But spring is when one of the country’s greatest natural sights occurs. The sakura, or cherry blossom, is spectacular, and some of our holidays are timed to celebrate the beautiful blush of delicate pink blossom that coats the country.
There are dozens of different cherry tree varieties in Japan, most of which bloom for just a couple of days in spring. The typical timing for our sakura cherry blossom tours is between the end of March and the first two weeks of April.

An amazing trip to japan to see its wonder and it didn’t disappoint. we were blessed with incredible weather which led to the blessing of seeing Mount Fuji fully during the day and at sunset which is mesmerising. the snow monkeys also came out to entertain us in such a beautiful location. we also had sakura viewings almost every day in abundance in the warm sunshine. spotting geisha wandering along and talking to each other as they were on the way to bookings was a lifelong tick of my list!! seeing a dance show complete with a comedy section which was totally relatable even if we couldn’t understand Japanese eating the most amazing food lots I have never had before and seeing how the real people of japan eat out and drink sake.
This was an amazingly rich first experience of travelling in Japan. The trip offers an excellent balance with cycling in varied and impressive scenery, countless included visits along the way allowing insight into the history and heritage of the country, and full immersion into the culinary and lifestyle culture.
