I might go Osaka during late March to maybe 5th April. Will I have high chance to catch a view of Sakura? Due to work, I might not be able to stay longer than 5th april

That's most likely plane landing time leh. :s13: Haven't account for airport customs clearance etc.

Also need to take into account flight delay

More or less quite on time but someday like 17 Sep, they actually delay 3 hours and reach at 1am

Also KIX custom clearance is quite slow.. If they got a few international flight landing at same time it could easily take up to 1 hour.

In 2013 when i landed in KIX in the morning, that time not many tourists but custom is horrible. standing in line 1 hour. after that, i never arrival at KIX, i will go Haneda or Narita.

Even departure at KIX is horrible the queue at custom is super long. Normally they do the bag check first before going to the custom officer
(But if you take Business class, you can skip queue)

I think KIX has improved over the years in preparation for 2020. The airport itself is an engineering marvel. Definitely not as bad as LAX.

I'm having a dilemma now. It's between Kawaguchiko vs Yamanaka-ko for my Mt Fuji viewing .. :s13:

I'm in favour of airport hotel option too. Don't start your honeymoon trip by mentally worrying/stressing about catching this bus that train. =:p
