Spring and Autumn are the two most comfortable seasons in Japan. A time when one can feel the breath of life and the symbols of early Spring – the cherry blossoms. Spring is the time for "Hanami," the cherry blossom viewing events that are held in many different locations all over the country. The best time to see cherry blossoms in Tokyo is usually from the end of March to the beginning of April. But one should be aware that temperatures fluctuate greatly during this time. It can be hot one day and the next day you may shiver from the cold.
