Embark on a full day of cherry blossom viewing across Kyoto with your private guide!
Spring is, many would argue, the best season to visit Japan with pink “sakura” blossoms adorning city parks, streets, river banks, temples and shrines. Cherry blossom season in Kyoto is usually between the end of March and the middle of April, however this may vary due to various factors such as the harshness of the winter prior. We stay up to date with regard to the cherry blossom season and you can leave it up to your guide to take you to the best spots. In 2020 in Kyoto, cherry blossoms are forecast to flower on/around March 23, and be in full bloom on/around April 1. 

There are a number of famous cherry blossom viewing areas and spots in Kyoto as well as those not known to many.
If you wish, you can pick and choose your own “sakura” destinations and together with your private guide create and have a memorable cherry blossom experience that will surely be one of the highlights of your visit to Japan.

Some of the well-known cherry blossom spots are:

Heian Jingu Shrine
Maruyama Park
Arashiyama area
Kamogawa River area
Nijo Castle
Kiyomizudera Temple
Philosopher’s Path
Hirano Shrine
Kyoto Gyoen
