Temperatures will be at an average of 13°C in the afternoons and 5°C during the mornings and evenings. One thing's for sure, you won't have sweaty armpits wherever you go. :D

Besides enjoying the cool breeze, you also get to indulge in some Japanese spring delicacies, such as the sakura mochi

The sakura mochi is a pink rice cake filled with sweet red bean paste (called anko) wrapped in a salted cherry blossom leaf that is enjoyed throughout the spring season.

Speaking of sakuras, perhaps the best thing about visiting Japan during the springtime is getting to see the gorgeous cherry blossoms

Every year, thousands of tourists and locals flock to the best places in Japan to view the spectacular flowers. The beautiful soft pink flowers that crown the trees in Japan are certainly a sight for sore eyes, with their lovely white and pink hues, the beauty of the cherry blossoms will definitely leave you in awe. Not to mention, the trees also make for a stunning background, instantly giving your photos a fairy tale feel.
