Okinawa’s Recommended Cherry Blossom Festivals of 2017

This year, the cherry blossom season has already begun in Okinawa, where spring arrives earlier than the rest of Japan.
Various festivals are held throughout Okinawa, where the cherry blossom season takes place from January to February every year.

The type of cherry blossom found is called kanhizakura, which differs from the Yoshino variety found in Honshu and is characterised by its bell shaped flowers.

This year, why not visit Okinawa for some early cherry blossom viewing?
