Cherry Blossom season in Tokyo
The cherry blossom (sakura) has been celebrated in Japan for many centuries and holds a very particular place in Japanese culture. Although there are many varieties of cherry tree in Japan, most bloom for just a couple of days in spring. The Japanese celebrate this time of the year with Hanami (cherry blossom viewing) parties: friends, family or work colleagues gather and sit on plastic mats under the blossoming trees, to drink, sing, chat or just admire the spectacle.
In an average year, the cherry blossoms start blooming on 25 March in Tokyo. Then, they hit full bloom (known as "mankai" in Japanese) on 2 April in Tokyo. About a week after that, most of the blossoms fall off the trees.
