Japan
Referring to the attractive tourist destination in the spring, we probably cannot mention Japan - a country famous for cherry blossoms. Spring is the best cherry blossom season in big cities like Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Nagoya to admire when white and pink colors put a layer upon all over the streets. The first flowers often appear in Okinawa in January, then Tokyo is set to begin blooming around the 21st of March.

Moreover, there is a culture named "Hanami" (flowers viewing), people gather to see the beauty of spring and picnic under the trees, enjoy sake.

Korea
Spring is considered to be the most beautiful season of the year in Korea because this is the time when flowers bloom and all things grow. The natural scenery in Korea during this period is vivid and colorful. Jinhae, Changwon is located about 30 km west of Busan. It is a quiet coastal town known for Korea's largest cherry blossom festival, attracting millions of visitors each year. In the spring, the city holds the largest cherry blossom festival in South Korea, with hundreds of thousands of pink trees lining streets, railways, and streams. The two most special points to have an overview of the glory of cherry blossoms are Yeojwacheon Stream and Gyeonghwa Station.

One more destination in South Korea that definitely makes you ecstatic is Jeju island. Just for a few beautiful sunny days in spring, the whole island is filled with flowers, not only cherry blossoms, but also yellow canola flowers and the last of winter's camellia flowers can be found. The weather becomes warmer and the temperature rises, everyone heads outdoors for a picnic and a camp or to the festivals that celebrate the springtime. If you are about catching this colorful and romantic moment when you travel to South Korea, it's best to keep an eye on weather predictions and plan your trip accordingly.
