What We Love:

Springtime in Japan heralds the coming of the sakura season where the country's entire landscape suddenly bursts into pink. As this bloom often only lasts a week or two, this half day tour allows you to view the very best sakura in Kansai day and night. The first stop on your cherry route is the Japan Mint, with vibrant gardens home to over 300 cherry trees containing over 100 different varieties. As this site is only open for one week a year to the general public, and arguably the best place for sakura viewing in the Kansai area - it's a sight you won't want to miss! Afterwards, you’ll head to the traditional district of Arashiyama, cross the famous bridge to enjoy the stunning pink reflection of the blossoms in the water. You’ll then arrive at the ancient Hirano Shrine in Kyoto, where the sakura festival has been celebrated ever since Emperor Kazan's reign in 985. Here you can sit beneath the canopy of pink blossoms as you enjoy a Japanese desert and drink and watch the beautiful cherries light up against the sky as it gets darker.
