About Sakura (Cherry Blossoms)

Cherry blossoms, or "sakura" as they are called in Japanese, are one of the most beloved symbols of spring, and the beautiful sceneries of blooming cherry blossoms in Japan have become famous around the world. The art of flower viewing, or “hanami” in Japanese, is a cultural tradition that goes back centuries, and during the season when cherry blossoms are in bloom, you will see groups of people sitting on picnic blankets underneath cherry blossom trees in parks, eating "bento" (Japanese style lunchbox) and drinking Japanese sake (rice wine). To get the most out of this spectacular event, knowing where to go for the best viewing experiences is a must. If you're travelling to Japan this spring, don't miss out on seeing the best cherry blossom spots Japan has to offer.
