CHERRY BLOSSOM

Ah, the beautiful Cherry Blossom – the international symbol that Spring has finally arrived. Of course traditionally one would think of Japan when it comes to Cherry Blossoms but cities around the world are also bursting with the vivid pink of the sakura flower (cherry blossom).

The much-anticipated event is celebrated with hanami gatherings with friends and family.
