My wife speaks some Japanese and we'll be travelling with our 2 year old daughter.
1. Is this a busy time of year for travel? i.e. do we need to book everything far in advance?
2. Our flight options are to Tokyo, Nagoya or Osaka. Which are the best areas for viewings close to these cities?
3. What dates should we book? This guide
shows average dates for all 3 cities to be around 28 March for start of the bloom and 5 April for the full bloom. Our trip will be 8-10 days.
Any other tips or advice?
