About 3.5 hours
The flowering of Japanese cherry trees or Sakura is a natural event known and appreciated all over the planet. The cherry blossom is a symbol of rebirth, of life itself and its beauty. Every year, in spring, thousands of people travel to Japan to enjoy the natural spectacle of these trees that bloom en masse with their white and pink colors full of nuances.
We will take a walking tour in the historic town embracing the World-Heritage shrines and temples in Nikko, while viewing the cherry trees that are more than 200 years old.
There will be plenty of time to enjoy the blossomed trees and take pictures, as we walk to our final destination where we will enjoy a hanami picnic in a Japanese atmosphere.
