In 2013, the cherry blossom festival Tokyo tricked everyone – although expected at the end of March, buds were noticed on March 16th – seven days ahead of the schedule predicted by the reliable weather forecaster, Weathermap. This was due to the atypical warmer weather experience in the beginning of March. Within ten days it is all over, causing great disappointment to many tourists who came especially to Tokyo.
