2009 Official (grin) Cheery Cherry Season

Here%26#39;s the latest 2009 Sakura blossoming ';schedule.'; for the Somei Yoshino cherry trees.

It takes a week to 2 weeks (depending on the weather) for the blossoms to fully open.

The dates that you see are for ';kaika = the first bud that%26#39;s going to blossom.'; That means, one teeny tiny flower, so don%26#39;t hold your breath.

Remember that the higher the altitude, the later the blossoming season. If you%26#39;re going to Nikko, plan on at least a week later for the trees to START blossoming.
