The first cherry blossom forecasts of 2024 have been announced by the Japan Meteorological Corporation (JMC).

Cherry blossom season is arguably the most beautiful time to visit Japan but is also the most notoriously difficult to plan for. Full bloom can last for just two weeks, less if the weather turns bad.

That’s why the forecasts by JMC are super helpful. If you can’t spend a month or more in Japan, it gives you a target window to plan your trips around and adjust your schedule or itinerary if necessary. JMC has launched an app (iOS/Android) this year which makes keeping up with the cherry blossom forecasts a breeze, but if you don’t want to install another app on your phone then you can check the forecast table below.

* Please note these are forecasts by JMC and can change closer to time
