Cherry Blossoms

April is the season that many flowers in Japan start to bloom. The most notable flowers of this time in Japan are the cherry blossoms (called ‘sakura’ in Japanese)

The exact time of the cherry blossoms blooming is difficult to predict, but when they do, many people visit the closest park, along with friends and spend the day eating and drinking under the cherry blossom trees. In some parks, this is often seen as an impromptu festival, with food vendors and games close by.
Many people view the cherry blossoms blooming as a sign that spring is starting, so this time of the year is very important to many people. It is one of the events in Japan that should be experienced.
