In Japan, cherry blossom festivals are events held to celebrate the beginning of spring. While most cherry blossom festivals on the island happen between March and May, some areas of the country hold them as early as January or February. The timing of the festival depends upon the blooming of the blossoms, which starts earlier on the island of Okinawa and then spreads slowly northward across the main islands. The arrival of the cherry blossoms in Japan has been celebrated for over a thousand years when Japanese aristocrats would write poems about the beauties of the blossoms and how they signalled the coming of spring.

These days cherry blossom festivals, known as “hanami” (literally ‘flower viewing’) are enjoyed by the public. Friends gather under the blossoms for companionship and eat, drink, and often sing about the beauty of ‘sakura’ or the cherry blossoms themselves.
