As mentioned in “Kyoto’s Plum Blossom Forecast for 2014“, now Kyoto is enjoying its plum blossom season. Plum blossoms remind people of the start of spring, although this weekend (March 8th/9th) is as cold as winter. That’s why there are still opportunities to see the colorful, vivid plum flowers.
Here’s the current plum blossom situation at the popular viewing spots.
Kitano Tenmangu Shrine 100 %
Imperial Palace 80 %
Nijo Castle 20 %
Kyoto Botanical Garden 10 %
