Not sure if you're taking a side trip or two while based in Takayama, but if you do then I suggest doing Shin Hotaka and then Tochio Onsen on your return bus leg the same day. Takayama to Shin Hotaka is a 90min bus ride, Takayama to Tochio 80min, both give or take.

I may possibly be wrong, but given a sakura festival is scheduled to open on 23rd you probably stand a hope of catching the blossoms in Tochio.

Greetings. I was there for the spring matsuri 14th to 16th and they were very much in bloom. Plenty of places to see them, unless there is a lot of rain I would imagine they'd still be at their peak. Very few on the ground. The views from all the little bridges were lovely. Katherine
