Viewing the Cherry Blossoms : It’s a fun spring event.

▶ Cherry blossom viewing is one of the important annual events in Japan. From March to April, cherry trees bloom across Japan. We put mats underneath the cherry blossoms in parks to hold outdoor drinking parties. It is a fun spring event.

▶ Cherry flowers first start blooming in the southern part of Japan. During the cherry viewing season, the media track “the cherry blossom front” daily to let people know the best places for enjoying the cherry blossoms.

▶ At the height of the season, good party spots become very popular. People line up early in the morning to get a good spot.
