Japan When is the best time to go for cherry blossoms/sakura?

We plan on visiting Honshu during the Sakura season next year. When is it best to go late March, April or early May? Thanks.

Cehck this site, it will give you the blooming for 2004 for all different areas of Japan.
http://gojapan.about.com/library/spe...yousou2004.htm
Last time I tried that site I had a hard time getting it to come up. If you have trouble, then go to http://gojapan.about.com and type in "cherry blossoms" in their search box and the info should come up. The blooms came a little early last year. That site also has a map of Japan and typical dates of blooming all over the country (as opposed to just the 2004 dates).

How strange. fodors.com is showing my reply, but when I replied it did not bump up your question to the top, nor did it register my response.
So I am replying again to see what happens...

emd, I've noticed that the site has been doing that for the last couple of weeks.

Thanks Kathie- I thought I had a fodors virus or something. I'm going to report it to the editors.
Eileen (who is hoping for early blooming during her mid to late March trip)
