Looking to travel internationally this coming vacation? Why don't you try out these "Kawaii" places in the Land of the Rising Sun?
And none is more visually appealing of all the amazing things this country offers than its world-famous Cherry Blossoms or Sakura trees.
This coming March to May, Japan is all set for the Hanami Festival (also known as Cherry blossom viewing) where the Japanese people gather in the park to see blooming Cherry trees. It’s another season of spring in Japan coming right in the month of March, April and May–the best time to visit Japan, where all of the people are anticipating the yearly natural spectacle.
Maruyama Park, Kyoto
The park has a picnic place where you can see 10-meter tall cherry trees, with a handful of people performing. It is a good way of relaxing, at the same time communicate with other people.
Arakurayama Sengen Park
It is a place where you can see a perfect combination of the mountain with a full of snow pagoda (a tall building in Japan), lined up by cherry trees. This makes for a perfect snap for your Instagram feed after the challenging 397-step climb to get there. After catching your breath, expect a breath-taking sight as you get a perfect view of Japan's national pride, Mt. Fuji.
Hirosaki Park is an actual castle and is still preserved after 200 years. The castle has since become a Park, and is also Japan’s best spot in viewing Cherry Blossom Trees, 2,500 of which are planted near the castle.
The 700-meter Chidorigafuchi-Ryokudo walkway along the moat of the Imperial Palace allows you to see Cherry Blossom Trees closely as Chidorigafuchi is most famous for its moat where you can rent boats to admire the pink blooms right from the water.
