When to go to Japan in April 2015 (blossoms but avoiding Golden Week)

Jump to last reply

Just starting to plan our first trip to Japan. We'd like to go for two weeks when the cherry blossoms are in bloom in April 2015, but avoiding super crowded times like Golden Week (is this last week of April? Not sure) and the week I've heard when school kids are on vacation if possible.

Realize that the blooms can't be predicted exactly and times vary by region. Probably flying into Tokyo but not staying there. So far am interested in area from Hakone to Takayama, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Nara and Mt Koya.

Will be posting more detailed questions once I do more research, but want to know more about the best time to visit in April 2015.

Thanks for your advice!
