Sakuras, commonly known as cherry blossoms are Japan’s age-old symbol of mortality; a metaphor denoting the ephemeral essence in living, reminding us that although life is beautiful, it is tragic and short. This winter day tour will allow you to marvel at the fleeting and fragile beauty of the cherry blossom tree. The pinkish hue of the flowers stand in bright contrast to the snow, showcasing a visual treat that people from around the world flock over to witness. After this, you will head to the snow playing area located on the slopes of Mt. Fuji where you can enjoy various activities against the backdrop of Japan’s symbolic mountain.
