Animal Crossing New Horizons Cherry Blossom Season 2022 Guide - How To Get Cherry Blossom Items & DIY Recipes?

As time passes in our lives, even in Animal Crossing: New Horizons we can admire the pace of the seasons, each of which can reserve us different surprises! One of these is undoubtedly the collection of themed materials, which can be used to make the ACNH DIY recipes of the period in question.

Spring, is the season of romantics! Nature awakens from the frost of winter and with the buds of the trees that will soon become green and thick foliage, the flowers begin to bloom and color the landscapes. On Animal Crossing New Horizons, during the spring period, we can find specific items, namely cherry petals, obviously not available during the rest of the year. 

In addition, on the day of the activation of the Cherry Petal Season, or the following days in case of overlap with other events, Isabella will have a special dialogue in its morning announcement, where it will inform us that it will be possible to find the petals around our island.

ACNH Cherry Blossom Season 2022 Start & End Date

On North Hemisphere’s ACNH island, the Cherry Blossom Season 2022 starts on April 1st and runs until April 10th, however, the ACNH players in Southern Hemisphere enjoy the beautiful season from October 1st to October 10th. 

In the event that the activation period of the event has ended, you can access it again by practicing a journey through time, also called Time Travel, simply by changing the date of your console.

ACNH Cherry Blossom Season 2022 Changes & New Items

  • Since this year's Bunny Day Event will take place in mid-April, it will be staggered from the cherry blossom season. So you will have more time to collect cherry petals and cherry blossom petal DIY recipes from balloon presents and message bottles.

  • A new cherry-blossom theme recipe and item - Cherry Blossom Rug is added in the Sakura Season 2022.

  • What's more, a new cherry-blossom recipe collection way is available, by taking captain's boat tours which wasn't a thing last year given captain and only arrived in the autumn, you can go to certain mystery islands to find the message bottles for recipes.

  • This new recipe collecting way brings us to another change surrounding the cherry blossom season, it turns out that many of these special islands that you can access using captain's boat tours are basically locked behind seasonal events, and that's the same for the cherry blossom island capping can take you to. You can only encounter the cherry blossom island and therefore catch cherry blossom petals and find cherry blossom DIYs if you have already played between April 1st and April 10th, so anyone who started their island since April 11th last year will be able to unlock the cherry blossom island this year and be able to travel to in the future. Anyone who played through the cherry blossom season last year can already encounter the island.

ACNH Cherry Blossom Items 2022

As anticipated to the seasonal event, Cherry Blossom Season is also held to bring players special collections of seasonal items. So collecting DIY Recipes and crafting materials is your way of enjoying a romantic cherry blossom festival. We sort out all the items you could collect during the Cherry Blossom Season. 

Cherry Blossom Petals

Cherry blossom petal units are available throughout our island and can be caught with a Net during the period of the event, that is, in the first days of April in the northern hemisphere and in the first days of October in the southern hemisphere.

In fact, during the first six days of the month, it will be possible to find them in the air rarely, while from the seventh day onwards our island will be hit by a rain of petals whose culmination will take place on the tenth day. During these days the frequency with which to find the petals will increase!

How To Catch (Collect) Cherry Blossom Petals: 

  • Cherry Petals will occasionally appear in the air around our island and can be caught with Net just like you do for bugs. Our advice is therefore to always keep at hand so as not to lose any cherry petals. It is also essential to pay close attention because, in the event that we miss the target or pass over it, the Net would disappear within a few seconds.

What Can Cherry Blossom Petals Be Used For?

  • Cherry Petals can be resold to Nook's Cranny for the price of 200 ACNH bells each and the frequency with which they are found varies with the passing of the days.

  • Cherry Petals can be used to craft the beautiful pink Cherry Blossom Sakura Set Items including furniture, accessories, tools, and more.
