Spring has come. It’s a season of sakura, cherry blossoms.
Now, you see cherry blossom everywhere, all over Japan.
It’s one of the best time to visit Japan.

In Japan, people really value and appreciate cherry blossoms more than any other flowers. Every year, this time of the year, people all get excited to see cherry blossom and they feel and impress like they never seen cherry blossom before.
People get together and have a party under the cherry trees, called hanami. Hanami is the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the beauty of flowers, in this case almost meaning cherry blossoms. People watched blossom forecast carefully by those planning hanami as the blossoms only last a week or two. In modern-day Japan, hanami mostly consists of having an outdoor party beneath the sakura during daytime or at night. Hanami at night is called yozakura ("night sakura"). In many places such as Ueno Park temporary paper lanterns are hung for the purpose of yozakura. It’s a really special thing.
