Cherry blossom viewing tours

The mercury has been dropping furiously for the whole week. And with wind knots going pass 40km/h frequently and we know spring has just arrived. Travel agents everywhere are displaying pinkish color pamphlets on their shelfs telling everyone the sakura viewing season is round the corner.

This pamphlet that I picked up, it is mostly 3D/2N plans with a few overnight plans, each offer Japanese style accommodations complete with Japanese course dinner and breakfast. Special dinner menu is being prepared during the hanami(cherry blossom viewing) season.
The various recommended cherry blossom viewing spots included; Hirosaki koen in Tohoku, Heian Jingu in Kyoto, Yoshinoyama in Nara and Takato Joshi Koen in Nagano to name a few.
