When comes March and April, first thing that will spring to my mind is Cherry Blossoms! When Spring season arrives, the temperature is getting warmer and warmer which leads to the flower blossoming of Sakura trees. The color of Sakura are normally in shades of pink or snow white, and it is really beautiful when it is in full bloom!
The Cherry Blossom Viewing is an annual big event for the Japanese as they gather with friends, families or colleagues and sit under the Sakura trees, enjoying the beauty of Sakura, chit-chatting and drinking beers. There are several popular viewing spots in Japan and to reserve a nice place, the Japanese even need to stay overnight just to secure it. Besides Japan, other countries like United States, UK and China etc also having Sakura trees and the people can enjoy viewing without having going to Japan.
I traveled to Japan last year and witnessed the beauty of Sakura. Sakura also is the famous subject matter for various photography enthusiasts. Thanks to photo sharing site like Flickr, I can browse through thousands of pictures of Sakura taken by various photographers. Below are some really nice pictures of Sakura. Please enjoy!
