To view the Japanese cherry flower in the season requires a little planning and a lot of luck: no matter how many articles you read or do you follow the latest news, cool weather that had suddenly come or hot weather can happen in a week or even more. Japanese cherry flowers in the most famous in the area of Tokyo and Kyoto are depleted its season in early April.


So if you arrive late at the party petals, you have to think heading north!

Flowers Kanazawa

Cherry flowers will bloom a little late in northern cities such as Sendai or Hakodate Japan is because the climate there is cooler. Another good choice to enjoy the cherry flowers during mid-April is in Kanazawa, 

which is located in the northwest of Tokyo in the Sea of ​​Japan. Modern town with some historic areas, the 

main goal in Kanazawa is a castle and Kenrokuen Kanazawa, which is one of the three best parks in Japan and a nice area to enjoy the cherry flower beds.

 Kenrokuen Kanazawa

Towards Kanazawa from Tokyo is very easy to use Japanese express train, Shinkansen. Riding Joetsu Shinkansen and express the continuing rise somewhat limited in Echigo-Yuzawa, with the long journey of about four hours. Kanazawa even closer to Kyoto and Osaka, only about two hours by express train them. To save on travel costs if you go to Kanazawa from Tokyo, you can use the bus from Shinjuku or Ikebukuro, even if your travel time will be longer.

The most famous parks in Japan, Kenrokuen, have been built since 1774. This park looks beautiful in every season, coupled with the color of cherry flowers in the summer of increasingly turn on the garden was painstakingly established. A row of trees near the entrance to the park and near the palace of Kanazawa is a good location to be photographed, but for the party the perfect Japanese cherry flower, hanami party should be attempted. During your journey to the park, stop into the family market, Sunkus, or other convenient stores for food supplies on Asahi Super Dry and snacks for impromptu party in the park.

In addition to the expanse of pink flowers, the area of ​​25 hectares in the park Kenrokuen also provides everything you want. Stone lanterns, painting bridges, majestic pagodas and many other ornamental. Before experiencing rapid development, is initially Kenrokuen Kanazawa Castle Park, and although the current building is the reconstruction, the palace was still close and has an impressive scenery.

Other Alternative Places

In addition to Kanazawa park still there are various places such as Nagamachi area, which has been rebuilt to show how the samurai Kanazawa life. Some houses like Nomura House is the original building, and throughout the area is beautiful scenery of Japan long ago. Higashi-Chaya Area is another interesting place, once the center of Kanazawa geisha world and now renovated into a romantic area for enjoying a glass of green tea. Modern place is also available there with quality as good, by adopting the architectural style of the 21st Century Museum of contemporary Art Kanazawa and stations that offer a perfect contrast with the

Although towards Kanazawa can be done in a day from Kyoto or Osaka, the departure from Tokyo needs to stop to stay, at least overnight to make the trip more interesting. To learn more about the history of Kanazawa, staying in traditional Japanese style inn as Nakayasu Ryokan could be the right choice, but costs such as the preferred lodging accommodations Totoko Dormy and adequately represent. Our excellent choice for hotels in Kanazawa is the Hotel Tokyufor a comparable price and convenience.
