Cherry Blossom Festival Jinhae Reviews

One of the most famous festivals in Korea Apr 05, 2014
Every year, the unimposing town of Jinhae explodes with cherry blossoms and a festival is held to welcome a new season of flowers. The whole town is covered in blossoms, to the point that it looks like it snowed. The festival usually takes place the first week of April, but the dates can be adjusted for maximum flower viewing.

The festival coincides with a naval holiday, so the local navy base opens its doors to visitors and the navy band plays at the festival as well. As you might expect, the festivities revolve around taking photos of the flowers, and eating local food, but there are some other things you can do.

If you come early in the morning, it will be much less crowded, but the major events are scheduled for later in the day. There is a parade, some fireworks, and other events that take place in the afternoon and early evening. If you don't mind the thick crowds and overpriced food, then it really is a nice festival.
