    There is an item in the latest release of Google Earth (Version 9) that would be of interest to a cherry blossom aficionado. One of the three entries in top portion of the Voyager category is entitled Cherry Blossoms in Full Bloom. It's description: "Tour some of the most beautiful and historic sites in Japan when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom."

    Google Earth – Android Apps on Google Play

    Note: The new version of Google Earth is not available for non-Chrome desktop browsers.

    You posted this 21 minutes ago and your posting comes up in a google search! That's amazing. Or does it just come up for me because I read it?

    OK, I inferred from your comment about where it is not available that the new version is available for Chrome desktop browsers, so usable on a desktop. I had to redo a search in the play store for google earth to bring up a page that has a functioning Install button. It said it was available for all my devices, but the dropdown only showed my phone and my tablet, not the desktop.

    Have you see this? On a mobile device or desktop?

    A map of the 25 sites included in the tour can be seen by closing the introductory screen of the tour rather than pressing on the EXPLORE button. It will take some time to complete the entire tour.

    Note: If the tour does not appear amongst the three displayed in the top half of the Voyager screen, it can be found in both the Travel and Nature categories; select the category then swipe up to locate the entry.
