Not many people realize this, but yes, in fact Sakura viewing is not an exclusively Japan-based activity! You can catch the beautiful white-petals in Korea too! Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival is one of the best spot for Sakura viewing in Busan. It is the biggest Cherry Blossom Festival in South Korea which will be held on 1st - 10th April. Make sure you don’t miss it! :wink:

8. Does Taiwan has Sakura that is near Taipei?

There are a lot of great spots to view the Sakura in Taipei, such as Tian Yuan Temple and Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. If you’re willing to go out of the town for a bit, then you should visit Yang Ming Shan National Park.
