For 2014, The official date that the official Sakura bloomed is March 25 2014. In another 5-7 days, the Sakuras around the Tokyo region would be in full bloom. You can imagine the excitement of everyone living here. Yes, Sakura is a big thing here in Japan and eating/drinking under the sakura trees is like something you must do in Japan to welcome Spring and to celebrate the “new year” since April 1 is when most Japanese would start their new job/new school. In fact, if you are looking for a new place to live, the best time is around March where everyone is busy moving in/out.
The rest of the park where the main walkway is still bare, in just another week or so we should expect to see this like from last year.
