Many Japanese like Sakura, and many foreigners also come to Japan during Sakura season! Sakura means cherry blossom in Japanese.
“Hanami (cherry blossom viewing)” is one of the big events among Japanese people, and of course many foreign tourists too! Hanami often means a picnic party to see and enjoy Sakura as well as food and drinks. People have a Hanami party with friends, family or colleagues in Sakura spots.
Last month, I visited to Kawazu, and there are 8,000 cherry trees. The Kawazu-zakura cherry blossoms have become famous as some of the earliest-blooming cherry blossoms in Tokyo’s outlying areas. “The Kawazu-zakura Cherry Blossom Festival” is held during the blooming season and visited by a million of Japanese and foreign tourists.
Typically, other kinds of cherry trees bloom in Tokyo between late March and early April. It’s almost there! Why not enjoy spring in the Japanese way:)
