Cherry blossoms play an important role in Japanese culture and for the brief time they are in bloom each spring, capture the imagination of the public. Known as ‘sakura’, the fragile beauty and fleeting nature of the blossoms is seen to reflect that of life itself – something to be cherished and delighted in with family and friends. Due to its altitude and cooler climate, Nagano’s sakura season is a little later than Tokyo’s and quite a lot later than the more southernly cities of Kyoto and Osaka.
The timing of the bloom varies between years, placing huge importance on the blossom forecast to time visits and events for peak bloom or ‘mankai’. As the blossoms come to full bloom, ‘hanami’ (flower viewing) becomes a national past-time with couples, workmates, friends and families gathering in parks and venues around Japan to eat, drink chat and just take in the fleeting beauty of the fabled blossoms of Japan.
