Blossoms on the “someiyoshino” variety of cherry trees fully bloomed in several areas in Japan, including Tokyo and Nagoya, slightly later than usual.

Full blooms in central Tokyo three days later than usual, after at least 80 percent of buds on a benchmark tree at Yasukuni Shrine had opened, satisfying the official criteria for the declaration.

Ueno Park in Tokyo, a famous viewing spot for cherry trees, was crowded with people who came to see the blossoms, which had withstood the strong winds that hit the area Tuesday.

Many places in Japan will observe blossoms or full blooms later than usual due to relatively cold weather in March, which is expected to continue through April.

Cherry blossomes are expected to come into bloom in early to mid-April in the cities of Kanazawa and Niigata on the Sea of Japan coast and Sendai in northeastern Japan. In Sapporo, cherries are expected to start blooming in early May.
