Where to stay if I want to see cherry blossom in May? Any festival for cherry blossom in Hokkaido ?
Hi, the best timing for cherry blossom would be from late of April to early of May.
Japan has a lot of Sakura Festivals at that time.
For example, Hakodate Park Sakura Festival, Goryoukaku Sakura Festival, Matsumae Sakura Festival and so on.
I think the best place to stay would be in Hakodate.
You can visit Hakodate Sakura Festival and Matsumae Sakura Festival.
What's more, you can access to Hirosaki Sakura Festival, which will be held in Hirosaki City, Aomori Prefecture.
You will be able to go along with the Cherry blossom front if you start journey from Hirosaki to Hakodate.
Thanks for asking me and hope it helps.
