Blossom Beauties!

When the clock ticks towards the end of March, Japan is blanketed by a sea of pink: with rows of blooming cherry trees in the countryside until May!

With how symbolic the cherry blossom is to the Japanese, naturally this is an important festival for them. During “Hanami”, or “Flower Viewing” festival, people crowd under the cherry trees for outdoor parties to sing, dance and frolick.

Food and drink

Of course, there’s also food and drink! During the festival, people would dig into specially-prepared “Hanami” bento, “dango” rice cakes, sake and other delicacies.

To honour the festival, people often make their snacks sakura-shaped or coloured. Complete with a patterned picnic cloth, each of them are like a tiny springtime artpiece!
