Many "cherry blossom fans" specifically choose to travel to Japan during the cherry blossom season. This year, many were disappointed due to climate changes, but it also allowed many to unexpectedly catch the cherry blossoms in full bloom during the best viewing period.

How long is the full bloom period for cherry blossoms?

Generally, the full bloom period for cherry blossoms lasts about 5 to 7 days. The 7 days following the full bloom day are also considered the "best days for viewing cherry blossoms." Since the cherry blossom season is very short, you must seize the time to capture the beautiful scenery! It is recommended to check various Japanese websites and apps that specialize in predicting cherry blossom bloom times to avoid disappointment.

In addition to cherry blossoms, the "Lake Kawaguchi craze" has become popular in recent years. Many tourists flock to take photos with the snow-capped Mount Fuji. How to get to Lake Kawaguchi?
1. Arrive at "Shinjuku Station" and take the "Fuji Excursion" train. It is recommended to book tickets online in advance, otherwise, you might have to stand for the entire 2-hour journey!
2. Take a "highway bus," which can also be booked in advance. The journey takes about 1 hour.
3. Book a one-day tour package online.
After arriving at Kawaguchiko Station, there are many buses outside the station that can take you to various famous attractions, such as "Oshino Hakkai" and "Oishi Park." However, bus fares are not cheap, so you can choose to buy a bus day pass according to your habits. You can also take a local train to "Shimoyoshida" and walk to the popular photo spot "Chureito Pagoda." But please be reminded that due to the large number of tourists, the local traffic is severely affected, so be sure to follow traffic rules and stay safe!
With the cherry blossoms in full bloom, you can capture both the snow-capped Mount Fuji and cherry blossoms in one view, which will leave you in awe. It's a must-see in your lifetime!
