The appreciation of ‘sakura’ to the Japanese, and cherry blossom to us, is a phenomenon that began in the 8th century and has spawned poetry and art. Japan is a wonderfully philosophical and traditional nation with deep rooted beliefs and a great appreciation for the natural world. The cherry blossoms perfectly symbolise the beauty and fleeting nature of life, and also new beginnings – blooming in most spectacular fashion for a week before giving way to fresh, green buds that bring Spring proper. Awash with all manner of shades of pink, it’s no wonder Japan’s cherry blossom season is the most awaited and anticipated time of year both for tourists and locals.
