Aomori / Lake Towada late April to early May

I am planning a short trip to Aomori during end April to catch the sakuras. Am planning to stay one night at Lake Towada.

Think during this period is the Jap Golden Week holiday where i would assume many locals would also be traveling? I was looking through the JR bus schedule and I know bus reservations are strongly advised but they can only be done when I reach Japan thru their JR offices? I am a bit worried that I may not get up the bus since they only have limited buses (only 3 if i am traveling from Hachinohe!) and the period is also peak holiday period. What are the chances of getting seats reserved only when i reach Japan a few days before i head up to Aomori? Are there other alternatives if sadly, i can't get up to any buses?

Any recommended ryokans around Lake Towada, preferably near the JR bus station?

Sakura bloom even in the street in front of Towada Art Center.

If you have time, I recommend it museum.

JR Tohoku Bus departs from Aomori to Lake Towada too since you are going to be in Aomori for the Sakura.
