What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Japan? Cherry blossoms are certainly the most famous plants in Japan. Washington DC in the United States has many cherry blossoms imported from Japan more than 100 years ago and have been a symbol of friendship between Japan and the US since. Famous sights to see cherry blossoms in Japan get so crowded during the season, so if you plan to see them in 2016, plan to visit in advance and make reservations for the hotel and tickets to Japan. However, it is very hard to predict when the best time is to see fully bloomed cherry blossoms because it depends on the weather and regions...don't be too sad if you miss it; the trees aren't going anywhere and you can always come back!
