Very pretty town, with canal side walks, shops and restaurants, and Japanese and foreigners strolling the streets with some wearing Yakata and clogs. Plenty of eating options - especially fish, crab and prawns - as well as nice coffee shops.More

Does anyone know the approximate time of cherry blossoms blooming in Kinosaki area? I will be visiting around the 25th-27th of April. Is that too late already? Thank you!

The peak times are late-March to early-April, so it may be too late. Any time in Spring should be very pretty there, though. Enjoy.
