Temperatures in recent days have been far above average across the country (except in northern Japan), causing a dramatic speed-up in the pace of the cherry blossom season.

The weather is expected to generally remain mild in the upcoming weeks, which is likely going to result in an early hanami season this year. In Tokyo, the representative tree started opening on March 16, the earliest date on records.
