2020 Cherry Blossom Forecast

February 12 , 2020
There’s no better place to see cherry blossoms than Gifu!
The prefecture is blessed with a handful of great cherry-blossom spots, and thanks to the altitude differences between northern and southern regions, the viewing window is quite a bit longer than other prefectures (in the forecast below, Gifu is the only prefecture in Japan with four different colors in area).

Make sure to take the forecast with a grain of salt as cherry blossoms can be quite finicky.
