8 Instagrams That’ll Make You Wish You Were in Japan Right Now

One of the many highlights of Instagrambesides capturing your daily life in a colorful stream of photosis traveling the world through the lens of a complete stranger. The search feature on Instagram allows you to travel to all corners of the earth at a moment’s notice. If an Instagram user has their location based services turned on, the photo will even reveal exactly where it was takendown to the neighborhood, square, restaurant or landmark. No more hashtag guessing game or comparing landmarks on Google images.

From late March to mid-April and even into May in some areas, Japan’s landscape blushes with the soft hues of cherry blossom season. Check out this cherry blooming forecast from Visit Japan International for peak bloom dates around the country.

From beautiful blossoms in parks surrounding metropolitan areas to tranquil boat rides with mountains rising from the background and even the bright neon lights of Tokyo at night, Instagrammers are taking full advantage of all the sites Japan offers its image-snapping visitors in spring:

Traveling the world vicariously through other people’s photos can be a fun source of future travel inspiration or one that brings out major tourist envy. I’m feeling a little of both right nowheavy on the envy part.
