However, the body of water in Ichifusa Reservoir seems to have moderated temperatures, and brought blossoms to their full nearly on schedule. I visited the area yesterday and took this picture (Cherry blossoms @ Ichifusa Reservoir, right).
Does anyone know how the Meteorological Agency derives its schedule for cherry blossoms? Please check the schedule out (March 28, 2007, was the most recent one that I found) and let us know (in a comment on this blog entry) what you think about blooming predictions.
