Hanami in Japan

Current stock: 0


In Japan, there is nothing more culturally significant in the springtime than cherry blossoms—the pink, heart-shaped petals that descend from the sakura trees lining pathways and rivers. Not only is the arrival of sakura blossoms a sign that spring has come, to the Japanese, it is a sign that another chapter of life is beginning. In order to understand why the Japanese do hanami, which is the act of sitting beneath the cherry trees to watch the petals fall, you need to first understand the history behind the cherry blossoms.
