In Japan, there are four seasons in a year, so we can see many kinds of flowers each season. The best one among them would be the season of cherry blossoms. At the beginning of April, cherry blossoms are in full bloom.
At this time, the weather reporters inform us of a cherry blossom front which comes up from the south to the north and tells us when would be the best time for seeing cherry blossoms.
Then we go not only to appreciate the cherry trees, but also to make a big picnic party under the cherry trees. It is called “O-hanami” in Japanese. It is also an especially wonderful sight to see cherry blossoms at night.
