Best of the Cherry Blossoms

My mom and I will be traveling to Japan (flying into Tokyo) during the second week of April to see the cherry blossoms. Because we'll only be in the country for around 5 days, we're focusing on quality over quantity. We will purchase bullet train passes and would like to take at least one day trip somewhere nice; thinking Kyoto or Nara.

Any suggestions would really be appreciated.

For the best of cherry blossoms, once you arrive in Tokyo, you check the real-time Cherry Blossom progress websites and use your rail pass to travel to those "best" cities/towns to see them. Any planning more than 2 weeks in advance is ineffective.
