VMG HOTELS & amp; UNIQUE VENUES is taking out with cherry blossom viewing spots and cherry blossom viewing at 12 venues in 5 areas of the same group venue nationwide with the establishment of “small-scale decentralized travel” recommended by the government. We have released a plan with products.

This year’s cherry blossoms are expected to bloom earlier than usual, and it is said that they will bloom from mid-March.
It will bloom in various parts of western and eastern Japan by the end of March, starting with Tokyo, which is expected to bloom on March 19 (Friday). The cherry blossom front will land in Hokuriku, Nagano, southern Tohoku, and Hokkaido in early April, and March to April is a perfect cherry blossom viewing period.

We recommend cherry blossom viewing with a small number of people this year, where you can relax and enjoy the cherry blossoms. There are many famous cherry blossom spots all over Japan, including Kyoto and Nara, the ancient capital. There are also many spots where you can enjoy Japanese castles and cherry blossoms, such as Ozu Castle, Takeda Castle Ruins, Iga Ueno Castle, and Sasayama Daishoin.

At VMG HOTELS & amp; UNIQUE VENUES, we will introduce the cherry blossom viewing spots recommended by the staff. How about a leisurely stay with the chef’s special cherry-blossom viewing set in one hand at a famous place unique to the local staff?

In the evening, you can relax in the seasonal bath with a dinner room, which is a spring-only menu. This small, decentralized hotel with separate rooms allows you to relax without worrying about other guests.
This time, as an example, I would like to introduce my stay at NIPPONIA HOTEL Osu Castle Town.
