It’s actually hard to plan a trip around the sakura trees.
It seems that every April, the sakura trees start to bloom and show their beauty to the people in Japan. The sakura trees are rooted into the country’s culture. A favorite pastime for people in Japan is picnicking under these beautiful pink trees. Here are pictures of these amazing trees.
The blooming periods of the sakura trees differ from year to year. Not to mention the season is short.
The blooms of these trees won’t stick around for long so it’s nice to check them out before they leave!
What’s sad is that most of the blossoms survive for only a short amount of time…
And some don’t survive if the weather is bad.
When the blossoms start to appear, they give trees a sort of fairy-tale hue.
Some people even say that they’re the perfect symbol for the nature of life.
There are 100 different kinds of cherry trees in Japan so you can expect the blossoms to be different from each other.
From a cute lavender…
To a beautiful pink…
And different shades in the middle!
There are actually festivals all over Japan dedicated to the cherry blossom trees. Families participate in the flower viewing.
The seasons of the cherry blossom trees depend on Japan’s climate. Some blooms even have yet to happen.
The cherry blossoms located in Sapporo and Aomori bloom in late April and early May.
If you are interested in seeing these beautiful trees, taking a trip to Japan will be totally worth it.
When you go to Japan during their blooming period, you should take a lot of pictures.
For those living in Japan, seeing a cherry blossom tree is normal but for those who don’t live in Japan, it’s once in a lifetime that you see one.
There are actually cherry blossom trees located in Washington, DC and Seattle, WA. But, even there, the seasons are still short.
