Have you ever heard of “hanami”?

"Hanami” is a Japanese tradition of welcoming spring!

Spring in Japan is very beautiful with cherry blossom trees.

There are many kinds of cherry blossoms, and ”Somei-yoshino” is the most famous one in Japan.

People enjoy Ohanami festival during springtime while having a meal with friends or family under the cherry blossom tree...
it’s like a picnic!

People also enjoy the cherry blossoms illuminated at night, we call "Yozakura" .

It’s so fantastic and very beautiful.

The cherry tree is a symbol of Japan.

Cherry blossoms remind people that life is short and beautiful.
