Although Japan is a small country, the island of Japan is vertically "long". Therefore there is some difference in the timing for enjoying cherry blossoms. Not only cherry blossoms but also all flowers start blooming from Southern part of Japan.

Starting from Okinawa, Kyushu, Shikoku, Honshuu and lastly Hokkaido, the time when they can enjoy cherry blossoms is different. Mass media broadcasts such forecast from time to time so that people will not miss the right timing.

This is really nice system and many people make the best use of this forecast system.
