Should we preponed our Aomori trip 2018/12/1 09:55
Hi
Ny husband and I are planning to reach Aomori; (Hirosaki) for cherry blossoms on 27th April for 3 nights and moving to Akita or Iwate for next 2 nights. Will we be late for cherry blossom viewing. Should we come around 23rd April to Aomori?
Please advise we will be travelling from Kyoto or Alps depending we come earlier or later.
Thanks.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to predict the timing of the blossoms over such a long time period. Even the forecasts made around early April are often not very accurate. The average best timing for Hirosaki is in late April, often into early May, but it can vary by +/- 1-2 weeks.

Thank you for your reply.
We have already booked our Kyoto accommodation till 21st April. We were planning to do Kiso on 22nd after Kyoto and then move to Alps.
In this trip, We would like to cover Alps, Tohoku and Tokyo (with Fuji day trip or May be visit to any of the flower park).
In what order should we do it? Just donft want to miss full bloom around Tohoku. Return flight is from Tokyo.
I know we canft predict the flower bloom but seeing last couple of years I was thinking should we go to Tohoku after Kyoto. Or spend couple of days in Tokyo first after Kyoto like 2 days there and then move to Tohoku, Alps, and last three days back in Tokyo.
(Plan is to 4 nights- Alps, 4 nights Tohoku, 5 nights - Tokyo).

Thanks.

I have been to the Hirosaki blossom festivals the past three years, and your dates might be on the late-side, but not unreasonable. For the park, there are 2600 trees covering 60 different varieties, some are early, some late so the chances of having blossom for your dates is very good.
