Why go in February and March?
You can enjoy the spectacular scenery of both Winter and Spring!
This specially designed itinerary takes you to locations proud of their early Springtime Plum blossoms and Cherry blossoms. True, from mid March to early April you will see more Cherry Blossoms and we do offer you another tour at that time .. but by then thousands of tourists will be crowding in to the easily accessible viewing spots.
In February, Mt Fuji will still be crowned by it’s much photographed snow cap, Kegon Falls in Nikko National Park is usually decorated with icicles and a tranquil silent calm pervades the colourful temples and shrines. Along the coastal lowlands, fields of Plum Trees will be turning from bud to bloom and the early Kawazu Cherry Blossom trees will be adorned with their first beautiful blooms of the season. Experience a dramatic difference in climatic conditions as we travel from north to south through mountains, lowland farmlands and along the coast.
