The cherry blossom
I love the cherry blossom, so called “sakura” in Japanese. Every time I think of Spring time, I remember our family picnic under the cherry blossom trees and the family ate prepared lunch box. Sakura is definitely the most beloved flower and Sakura is the national symbol. Unlike America, Japanese school’s new term usually starts in April, when the sakura blooming is at its peak bloom. Cherry blossoms are breathtakingly beautiful and I write about its beauty and transience almost every year in Spring. I wish I was in Japan just so I will be able to experience its beauty. During the spring, the weather forecasts include the reports about cherry blossoms so people in Japan can plan their hanami in advance.
