Overview

In spring, we have many kind of Sakura here in Kyoto; Kawazu Zakura, Shidare Zakura, Someiyoshino, Omuro Zakura, and Kitano Zakura. Someiyoshino is so-called Sakura. In this article, we foresee the best period to adore them.

In Kyoto, we can enjoy from mid-March to late-April, i.e., from Kawazu Zakura to Kitano Zakura.

Most of kinds of Sakura stay full-bloom for a couples of days. This is “Migoro,” the best period to see them.

This year, Kawazu Zakura went into full-bloom about 2 weeks earlier than usual.

Migoro

Migoro means “the best time to see something.” Kyoto gives us 4 Migoro of Sakura;

  • Mid-March
  • Late March to mid-April
  • Mid-April
  • Around April 20th

Blooming of Sakura depend on weather, warmth and so on. So we can not foresee Migoro precisely and exactly.

2020年3月8日御所の桜2020年3月8日御所の桜

At Konoetei-ato in Kyoto Imperial Place, We cans see some flowers of Yamazakura and Shidare Zakura bloom. About 10 days earlier than usual year. Kawazu Zakura is still in full-bloom but petals of some flowers start to fall.

February 27

Kawazu Zakura in many places bloom 2 weeks earlier than expected. This is the case with Ume, Japanese plum blossom, and I suppose this is a trend of 2020.

On Jan. 2, we can’t find Unryubai in Kitano Tenmangu shrine but most of Ume bloom 2 weeks earlier than usual year. We can’t see whether other Sakura also bloom earlier in the same way or not.

Thought we can’t foresee the future, we can expect other Sakura bloom 10 to 14 days eaelier. Usually, most of popular Sakura places in Migoro in early-April. In this year, If we visited Kyoto in the usual Migoro, we might be in the state of mid-April in usual year. This means we would enjoy Sakura in Haradanien, Ninnnaji temple(Omuro Zakura), and Kitano Tenmangu shrine(Kitano Zakura), and Rakusai region. On the other hand, we also would enjoy Green Maple.
