13 Things To Do During Spring In Japan -Updated in 2019!-

Read in: English ●  Indonesia

Japan never fails to impress us on each of its seasons but spring seems to have its own charm. Tourists from around the world come to Japan to see Sakura trees blooming. Not only that, many interesting attractions and festivals are also held during spring. And since it’s already March, let’s see these 13 things you can do during spring in Japan!

Spring in Japan via author’s personal collection

 1. Enjoy Sakura Hanami 

It is no surprise that the main attraction of spring at this land of the rising sun is seeing a blooming Sakura or often called as Hanami. Sakura blooms differently across Japan but it generally fully blooms from late March to early April. You can find many good spots to enjoy Sakura across TokyoKansai (Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe) and other cities in Japan! Japanese people usually use this occasion of Hanami to freely express themselves and have fun, including having a drink during the day (something they won’t normally do).

Prepare the picnic carpet, come early, and don’t forget to grab some foods before you hanami.

Tips: those who want to save some money, bring Onigiri for your picnic with only 100-150 yen! But make sure you buy the seafood or vegetables filling because the meat or chicken variants are not Halal. Check this article to know how to read Halal Onigiri wrappers so you won’t buy the wrong variant.

2. The Magnificient Fuji Shibazakura, Yamanashi

Mount Fuji, one of the famous landmark that you should not miss while visiting Japan! Located in Yamanashi prefecture, about 2-3 hours from Tokyo, there is a lake called Kawaguchiko at the foot of Mount Fuji. The Fuji Shibazakura festival is held near the lake every spring on April and May.

In contrast to regular Sakura view, there are no cherry blossom trees in this festival! You will see a large land of colorful flowers surrounding the lake with Mount Fuji as a background behind it! Definitely the perfect photo spot for your Japan trip during spring!

3. All Kind of Sakura-theme Foods!

During spring season, a lot of shops began serving meals and pastries with cherry ornament on it. Some of which you must try is Sakura Mochi and Sakura Dango! Mochi which usually filled with red beans is wrapped in cherry leaves. Distinctive flavor from the cherry leaves and mocha beans unites quite well and makes it as if there is some cherry blossom festival in your mouth!

It tastes quite good and unique and you won’t find this special seasonal food in any other days other than spring. There is also Sakura Dango, other cakes and puddings that uses real cherry leaf in it. You should try at least one of them. But becareful as not all of the food mentioned above is Halal friendly, so don’t forget to use our muslim dietary card before purchasing one.

4. Must-try Sakura Latte!

Starbucks also grace Sakura season with their Sakura Latte menu. The drinks were spiked with cherry powder and cherry flavors in its whipped cream and only available during spring season. In addition to the drinks, there is a special Starbucks card, mug and tumbler with spring theme as well. If you are a fan of Starbucks, these items should not be spared from your list.

The temple itself is actually located in the central area of Tokyo. It has a mini ‘Fushimi Inari’ like the 1,000 gates shrine of Fushimi Inari in Kyoto (This means you don’t have to go all the way to Kyoto for the Inari shots if you’re in Tokyo!)

Children’s Day, or actually just for the boys, is celebrated on May 5 in Japan since 1948. While for the girls, the day is commemorated by Hina Matsuri (doll festival) every year on March 3. This children’s day is a chance for you to see the Koi Nobori decoration or carp streamer in almost everywhere. In Japanese culture, the carp symbolizes courage and strength because of its ability to swim up a waterfall. This is to express a hope that each boy in Japan will grow up healthy and strong like carps. Don’t miss out on this colorful carps as you can only see it once a year!

Born and raised in a multicultural and an archipelago country like Indonesia, made me an explorer. I love to walk, stares, and share stories. Meet the new people, new environment, new culture, new point of view. Life is not about walking to some point, it’s about how I reach that point and learn everything that earned on the way and how that journey made me as I am now. Also, really love to cook and to eat!! A journey and Life itself is also about food, right?!
