With luck on your side, this may be your opportunity to visit Japan’s fabled Sakura. Famously erratic, the cherry blossom season is perhaps the eighth wonder of the world. Visit the parks of Osaka, Aomori, Hakodate and Sakata, searching for the delicate blossom. In other ports enjoy the shrines and temples that are a place of zen spirituality, no matter what you believe. Hiroshima and Nagasaki’s Peace Parks will not leave you unmoved.
