Agoda.com readies accommodation specials for Japan’s sakura cherry blossom season

SINGAPORE (25 February, 2015)

Agoda.com, one of Asia’s leading hotel booking sites and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), has uncovered a list of accommodation options offering special low rates for Japan’s famous cherry blossom season, one of country’s most beautiful and popular annual events.

Known in Japan simply as sakura, the season is centered on the humble cherry tree, which grow throughout Japan in the millions. Most of the time they are background scenery, but come spring, the trees erupt in tiny, pink and white blossoms, turning parks, streets, and riverbanks into massive canvases of color. Moving in a wave from south to north as the weather warms, the cherry blossom’s bright colors, impermanence, and consistency have played an important role in Japanese art, literature, and culture for hundreds of years.

To celebrate the famed event this year, Agoda.com has created a special landing page where visitors can find great specials on accommodation from 21 March – 11 April in the cities of Osaka, Kyoto, and Tokyo. Head to www.Agoda.com/Sakura to browse destinations and accommodation options. But don’t delay – bookings can only be made from 3-9 March, 2015.
