Springtime in Japan is fast approaching and with it the promise of cherry blossoms. Many Japanese families and friends spend their time on a picnic known as ‘hanami’, where they sit and admire the ubiquitous cherry blossom trees. Trees usually bloom pink and white at the end of March into early April in Tokyo and Kyoto, casting a delicate, brief frame over parks and trails. The farther south you go, the earlier the bloom season.
