According to Japan Meteorological Corporation's forecast, the famed season is set to start a week earlier than normal this year as Tokyo's expected to bloom in March, instead of the typical April. The projected early turnout is reportedly due to rising temperatures in autumn and winter, as well as the anticipated warm weather come springtime between March to May.

JMC's forecast was last updated on January 9, 2020 and may be subject to change. But in the meantime, it's a fairly accurate calendar to base your Japan trip and itinerary off of.
