SPRING TIME in JAPAN/SOUTH KOREA

Cherry blossoms will soon bloom again all over the world. In Japan, Hanami will soon come and people from near and far will celebrate this joy of nature with picnics under cherry trees, drink sake, listen to music, meet up with friends, old and new, but mostly out for that once a year experience that lasts for a short week. Happily, cherry blossom viewing destinations abound in Japan and South Korea for those who live in less temperate countries. Even better, both have multi-city destinations which are affordable from the Philippines.

Japan's celebrated cherry blossom trees are located mostly in wide-open public places. In Tokyo, Ueno Park is the most famous of these. It is home to a string of museums, shrines and ponds, and it is one of Tokyo's oldest parks. A surprise find for hanami is Shinjuku Gyoen, a short walk away from the entertainment, business and shopping area of  Shinjuku. In Kyoto, stroll along Kamo River for a backdrop of cherry trees for your selfie. Osaka also holds the 'Annual Cherry Blossom Viewing' started in 1883. It is a weeklong event staged at the Japanese Mint with 349 cherry trees lined from the south to the north gate.

Japan's cherry blossom forecasters gives updates of the expected arrival of the first blooms. Check their website here: sakura.weathermap.jp.

In South Korea, cherry blossoms come earliest in Jeju Island, the country's southernmost island. Generally advised for cherry blossom viewers to go in late March, the island features its very own Cherry Blossom Festival. If you're looking to be at THE festival, Busan is the place to be. The city is home to a 10-day festival with street food stalls, parades and performances to entertain viewers after long walks searching for that one perfect selfie. If you're a K-Drama fan, then head to Nami Island. A short day-trip from Seoul, in rural Korea, the entire island has the peaceful and romantic atmosphere which many fans would be familiar with.
