As the snow melts and fresh grass spring up from the earth, Japan's landscape will soon be transformed into an ocean of pink and cream blooms as the cherry trees start blossoming in all its full glory. Delicate petals fluttering down from the trees will dust every square inch of the ground, creating an ethereal beauty unlike anything you will ever experience.
Japan in the springtime is a fairytale fantasy come true. Voluminous puffs of cherry blossoms adorning the trees give the illusion of fluffy pink clouds, bringing both Japanese and tourists flocking to parks to indulge in one of the nation’s all-time favorite pastimes – hanami, which literally translates as “looking as flowers” and refers to flower appreciation picnics under the blooms.
