The cherry blossom season in Japan is set to bloom soon.

Go Tokyo, the official Tokyo Travel guide, said this season is set around late March to April. It added that given the geographical scope of Japan, the blooming period could last for around four months.

Travel and experience platform, Klook, on the other hand, said the elegant flowers will take over and bloom for a couple of weeks and paint all corners of the country pink in either Tokyo, Kyoto, Fukouka or Hokkaido.

From the picturesque cherry blossoms of Takayama and Shirakawa-go in Nagoya, Mt. Fuji, Kawazu-zakura Joren Falls and Nanohana in Tokyo, Mount Yoshino in Nara to Fukushima, there are several tourist destinations in Japan to revel in and marvel at the Sakura.

With many expecting to witness the beauty of the Sakura in Japan, Klook will be holding a special cherry blossom pop-up dubbed “Under the Pink Sky” for travelers.

The pop-up event is slated Saturday, March 4 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Caffe Pocofino, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
Attendees of the pop-up event will be treated with various discounts and freebies.
