It means sooner or later, most of the top hanami spots that are located around Japan would welcome sakura flowers. The map shown below indicates how the cherry blossom viewing season (Hanami) of Japan for 2017 goes upward (Hokkaido) from the lower elevations (Okinawa). Every year, Japan’s first cherry blossoms appear in Okinawa. The average time for appearing cherry blossom may vary depending on the weather conditions. You better keep an eye on this year cherry blossom forecast for 2017 in order to catch all the action of sakura in different regions of Japan.
