March Update 3/25: CHERRY BLOSSOMS STARTED BLOOMING IN TOKYO ON 3/16

Due to the recent unseasonably warm weather around the eastern seaboard, the cherry blossoms have bloomed much earlier than expected in many places, but don’t worry, you can still catch the cherry blossom in many parts of Japan.

The private site Weathermap had the first cherry-blossom forecast up this year, but the most reliable site is the official Japan Weather Association’s tenki.jp and the Japanese WeatherNews’s weathernews.jp. Both of the latter have been updating their sites regularly to keep up with the recent rapid changes in weather.
