Hi! Do you know if it's possible to see any blooming trees in Japan if you go there in February? Is it too early or not?

    I was able to check some types of cherry blossoms like Ichiyozakura, Kanzanzakura etc. Their blooming period is from mid of April through the end of the month. Usually, the blooming period last for two weeks or more. Just checked that there is one in Saitama. It is about 4 kilometers of Yaezakura. I wish I could see it next year.

    Mostly petals of Someiyoshino Cherry trees were gone like a carpet on the ground, river, pond or the wind blew them away somewhere but we still have other kind of Cherry trees to bloom or some parts of Japan, they are in bloom. We have Yaezakura, Fugenzozakura, Shidarezakura, Kanzanzakura, Ukonzakura, Ichiyozakura, Shougetsuzakura, Kikuzakura , ?????? And other seasoned flowers to enjoy.

    Recently, Cherry Blossoms viewing has started from south to north of Japan. You call it Hanami in Japanese. Next time, I will share some photos.

    We had ume or plum blossom seasons last February. There are some parts of Izu, Hakone , Odawara ..... with early cherry blossoms. I have been to Matsuda last February and I enjoyed viewing early Cherry Blossoms and Nano Hana or Rape or Canola flower. I love it. It is a striking yellow color. It is an edible flower. Actually, I am planning to plant it next season. You can see it around Japan now.

    @Monika Sure, It's possible but if you want to go on south of Izu, you need about 3 h to get there, so It's better to stay for a night there.

    If you want to see plum trees blooming it is ok.For cherry blooming you should wait until the middle of March.I am talking about Kanto,Tokai or Kansai regions.

    Hi! Not sure but I once went to Tokyo and further traveled to Izu area for a Onsen vacation with my Japanese friends, they guided me to the coast area of Izu and there was a large patch of narcissus in blossom. My friend told me that it is a flower viewing festival held annually.
    I also found a link to the website of the festival. If you are visiting Tokyo, you may consider a trip to Izu, it only takes I guess 2 hours to Izu if you ride a rapid train.
