Overview of festivals and celebrations in Japan
The cherry blossom festival “Hanami” enjoys the love of the Japanese who are extremely sensitive to the process of observing flowering trees. Sakura blooms lasts for only a few days and when the cold comes, the flowering period lasts only a few hours. In addition to natural beauty, the locals see a profound meaning in this, which consists of the fragility and transience of human life. Sakura’s blooming begins at different times in different cities. Officially, the beginning of the holiday is announced when the first flower blossoms in the trees near the ancient Buddhist shrine of Yasukuni in Tokyo. This usually occurs in the middle or end of March.
