As the cherry blossoms start to bloom this season,
It is crowded with cherry-blossom viewing such as “Sakura Festival” everywhere in Japan.
Cherry blossoms bloom between late March and April, in Tokyo.
The peak bloom period depends on the place and climate.
In Okinawa, Sakura Festivals are held in January, on the other hand in Hokkaido it’s in early May.
Japanese people love cherry blossoms not only because they are beautiful but also because
they only bloom for a very short period.
We enjoy eating and drinking with family, friends or coworkers under the fully bloomed cherry blossoms.
Every spring, many parks get crowded with viewers and street stalls.
Sometimes people stay overnight at the park to get a good spot for cherry blossom viewing.
People enjoy Yozakura, the illuminated cherry blossom at night.
I recommend you to see it because it’s fantastic and very beautiful.
In recent years, there seems to be an increasing number of foreign tourists who are looking for
cherry-blossom viewing even in Tokyo and other places in Japan.
I would like to deepen understanding of “the heart of Japan” through international unique “flower viewing culture”
and international mutual understanding.
