Early May in Hokkaido? You’ll see sakura.

Thanks bro, Was there last year Mar. A little early and only see partial sakura. a little sad. Hope May will be able to see more this time.

Next time if you travelled to Tokyo late February, can head down to Kawazu or Miura-Kaigan for early blooming sakura.

If you’re in Tokyo, can try Showa Kinen Park. I was in Tokyo for a week after GW this year. Managed to catch nemophila, poppy and suiren.

It would be best to monitor the flowering status for individual parks. We won’t know how the weather conditions would be for next May.
