My partner and I am planning a trip to Japan next year in Spring. We are in very initial stages of planning the trip. We will be there for 15 days( we can add or subtract one or 2 days). Not booked the flights so still can play around the dates.
I still have no idea how to divide the time between them. Also I have to see that there is an option to fly out from Osaka or it will be better to backtrack to Tokyo ( flight savings).
I know that there is no forecast of Sakura bloom until before few months. I have thought of two options either to come in first week of April and if lucky can enjoy the cherry blossom or to delay it for a week (around 10th April) to enjoy whatever Sakura is left. Also We would love to see Shibazakura at Mt. Fuji, Azaleas, Nemophilia at Hitachi seaside park, Wisteria at Ashigaka ( near to Tokyo)or Kawachi Fuji gardens( which I am assuming is a day trip option from Kyoto or Hiroshima).
I am an amateur photographer so would love the capture Japan in Spring. Because the Easter holiday here in UK is from 19th to 22nd April so it would be better to include them during our trip to Japan.
Also would definitely like to avoid Golden week which I read is from 29th April next year.
Any thoughts, any ideas please advice us.. We would really appreciate it.
Thanks a lot.Edited: 06 August 2018, 22:31
