Your Ultimate Guide to Cherry Blossom Viewing in Japan

Book it!

 

To prepare for hanami viewing, you’ll need a picnic blanket or a tarp for you to sit on at the park. You’ll also need food and drinks — what’s a celebration without them? You can purchase beautifully packaged bento boxes made specially for the sakura season anywhere. Also pack snacks, wine, beer, or sake! Oh, and don’t forget your manners; always take off your shoes before stepping on your picnic mat.
