Kyoto, Japan – There is arguably no destination more beautiful in the spring than Kyoto. The city’s spectacular cherry blossom season is carefully forecasted each year, and predictions for 2019 suggest that the flowers will arrive on March 23, with the peak viewing taking place from early to mid April. Luckily, that means you still have time to plan a trip. For those who love luxury hotels but still want an authentic local experience, book a room at Hoshinoya Kyoto. The top-rated property promises travelers the experience of a traditional ryokan (Japanese-style inn) with an elegant, five-star twist.

    If I were to visit Japan, I would choose to visit in spring. Happy Wednesday!

      Me too, Nancy. If you do take lots of pictures. 🙂

  2. April 24, 2019 at 12:25 am

    That is beautiful! I wonder if those cherry blossoms smell as good as they look.

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:27 pm

      I’m guessing they don’t. It would be hard to make this any better. 🙂

  3. April 24, 2019 at 1:16 am

    What a beautiful place all the lovely cherry blossom love the colour 🙂

    Have a blossomtastic WWS ➡

      It is a beautiful place, Steve. You’re welcome for the add too. 🙂

    Very pretty. Spring would be a good time to visit Japan

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:26 pm

      It sure would and I’d love to visit this city. 🙂

    I remember Hanami picnics — picnics under the cherry blossom trees during blossoming season. Even the tiniest breeze would send petals fluttering down. So lovely.

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:26 pm

      I would love to have experienced that picnic. 🙂

        It’s pretty cool. I wonder if Japanese gardens in California allow Hanami picnics this time of year. I should’ve checked when I was there.

    Mom says Kyoto is a very pretty place, but cherry blossoms make any place beautiful.

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:25 pm

      I agree that cherry blossoms make any place beautiful. 🙂

  7. April 24, 2019 at 4:01 am

    That’s about as pretty as it gets!

    Gorgeous picture. Cherry blossoms look so springy and refreshing. Happy Wednesday!

  16. April 24, 2019 at 7:27 am

    It looks like Washington DC without the slimeballs.

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:20 pm

      You tell them, Kismet. I see we feel the same about DC. You’re a smart bird. 🙂

    Almost supernatural!

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:20 pm

      It is indeed. I love all things Japanese. 🙂

  20. April 24, 2019 at 9:59 am

    Mom was in DC once many moons ago when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom – absolutely stunning!!!

      It is stunning indeed. Special healing hugs to Lightning. 🙂

    That would be the trip of a lifetime. Beautiful. Be well!

    • Sandee

    Just breathtaking, it almost makes me want to visit Japan.

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:17 pm

      It does make me want to visit Japan and during the first part of April. 🙂

  23. April 24, 2019 at 11:05 am

    WOW!!! Love, love, love that photo.

    Happy WW, Sandee!

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:16 pm

      I did too. I love spring blossoms. They always make my heart happy. 🙂

  24. April 24, 2019 at 11:15 am

    my oh my….gorgeous blossoms!

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:16 pm

      I would love to see this in person. 🙂

  25. April 24, 2019 at 12:26 pm

    my daughter just came back from japan two days ago! she said the blossoms were beyond beautiful.

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:15 pm

      I would think so. I’ve been to Japan Town in S.F. and that’s a beautiful sight too, but nothing this spectacular. 🙂

  26. April 24, 2019 at 12:35 pm

    Make a nice picture puzzle! Where are my alergy pills?

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:14 pm

      It would make a nice puzzle. Yes those with allergies would be suffering here. 🙂

  27. April 24, 2019 at 1:23 pm

    Sooo pretty! I loved spring time in Japan, seeing the cherry blossoms, and they even had spring time decorations on the town’s light poles that were pink and green to represent them.
    Happy middle of the week! <3

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 1:29 pm

      Hubby and I would love to visit Japan anyway, but I’d choose to visit so I could see this. You have a happy middle of the week too. 🙂

  28. April 24, 2019 at 3:23 pm

    It would take a long time for me to get tired of seeing this, if i ever did. Happy Wednesday!

    • Sandee
      April 24, 2019 at 4:01 pm

      That makes two of us, my friend. 🙂

  29. April 24, 2019 at 5:45 pm

    Japenese Cherry Trees are so very pink, fluffy and beautiful!

    • Sandee
      April 25, 2019 at 6:56 am

      I agree with you. They are breathtakingly beautiful. 🙂

  30. April 24, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    Very pretty! That would be amazing to see that many all blooming!

    Happy almost the weekend!

    • Sandee
      April 25, 2019 at 6:57 am

      It would indeed. I would love to visit during this time of year. 🙂

  31. April 24, 2019 at 8:52 pm

    Oh, I loves that! Ma had a Wirehair Fox Terrier whose mother came from Kyoto! I always visioned her running through all the cherry trees at bloom. Thanks for the beautiful picture!
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥

      April 25, 2019 at 6:58 am
