SPRING TIME IN JAPAN
Spring in Japan is from March to May. The cherry blossoms, known in Japan as sakura, are usually only in full bloom for around one week. For many Japanese, the blooming of the cherry blossom trees symbolizes human life, transience and nobleness. The Japanese love to celebrate and cherish the cherry blossoms trees during the limited flowering period and many people hold ‘flower watching’ parties known as hanami. You cannot travel to Japan in spring without appreciating the beauty of the sakura and experiencing a hanami party for yourself!
