It is well known that Japanese people are crazy about Sakura (cherry blossoms).

As for myself, I can't wait to have "Hanami" (cherry blossom viewing: while you are viewing sakura, you enjoy eating lunch box and drinking sake!)with my friends.

I think forecasts of cherry blossom flowering time is represented of the craziness of Japanese people!
The Japan Meteorological Agency gives it annually. Seeing the forecast, people start planing about when to go for Hanami.

Also, in this season you will see blue rugs under trees. No one is there but it may be even surrounding by ropes. It's called "Bashotori" which is for saving a better spot for Hanami before other people take it!!! How funny is that!

According to the forecast, Sakura has just started its flowering from today in Hiroshima!
Peace park is one of the famous place for Hanami. Enjoy!
