Cherry Blossom (Sakura) in Okinawa 2020

The earliest Cherry Blossom (Sakura) in Japan is in Okinawa. Hanami at Okinawa (Flower Viewing) begins in mid January until mid February. During this period people in other regions enjoy Winter Festival instead. Normally, Hanami in Japan is between March-April. If you don't visit Japan in March or April and would like to experience cherry blossom, Okinawa may be your alternative. I gather some useful information about Cherry Blossom Festival in Okinawa as follows:
