In Okinawa,southern part of Japan,Sakura the cherry blossoms are in full bloom now. Cherry Blossom Front lands the southern Kyushu and Shikoku areas in middle March and moves northward to the Seto Inland Sea coast, the Kanto region, the Hokuriku region, the Tohoku region and finally reaches Hokkaido,the northern part of Japan,in early May annually.
