My sister and I would love to visit Japan at cherry blossom time, any suggestions for dates and festival that would be a must.
Usually cherry blossom can be seen from the late March to early April in Tokyo area. You might get more precise forecast as the time gets closer.
I visited Osaka Castle park on the 30th of March,2013 and there were so many cherry blossoms blooming!!
The best periods would be the end of March to early April to see Cherry blossoms in the Kansai region such as Osaka and Kyoto so on. Every middle of April, Osaka's Mint bureau open to public to see its cherry blossoms:
