The cherry blossom is the flower of Japan. The Sakura represents a time of renewal and optimism. This marks the end of winter and signifies the beginning of spring. The beautiful pink flowers that fill the trees are an experience to see.
The best time to see the blossoms are from April 4-April 20. Each year it can change due to rain or high winds.
Bloom Watch for National Cherry Blossom 🌸 Festivals!
AVOIDING THE CROWDS
So, you made it to the Cherry Blossom festival and you are ready to take some memorable photos. The only thing is hundreds of other people are there with the same idea. You try to get some pictures, but someone is in every shot you take. The trees bloom for a short time, so when is it the best time to avoid crowds?
I suggest taking photos early in the morning, before 9 am, or close to sunset. Going during the rain will get you little to no crowds at all. Most visitors will prefer to go on sunny days.
The big festivals will be held in New Jersey, New York, Washington DC, and Philadelphia. In addition, celebrations will be held in many cities celebrating the blossoming of the flowers.
The peak bloom lasts for a short time. You can call most locations before heading out for your visit to see if they have bloomed to save a trip.
