Sakura season is well on its way with many of the cherry trees across the city approaching peak bloom (in case you missed our report). For those hoping to enjoy the cherry blossoms at their prettiest, best get over to these top sakura spots in the city over the next few days. These flowers are well known for their fleeting beauty, as they generally only last for a week after reaching full bloom. There's rain in the forecast this weekend, so the flowers might not be around for long. 

To inspire you on how to capture the perfect sakura shot, we've compiled a list of our favourite cherry blossom posts on Instagram. For more photos of sakura and updates on what's happening around Tokyo, follow us on Instagram. Want to seek out the sakura for yourself? You'll find the best sakura-themed events here – but don't forget to read our ultimate guide to cherry blossoms before you go.
