Japanese Cherry Blossom Season Attract Tourist from All over the World

by Japan Deluxe Tours, Inc. Japan Vacation Packages

Cherry blossoms trip to Japan is popular all over the world and put on a spectacular display every spring with tourists coming from far and wide to see the amazing sight. This season in Japan is called Hanami, which translates into viewing the cherry blossoms (the flowers themselves are called Sakura). In Japanese culture, cherry blossoms play such an important role; they are rare, short-lived, and admired for their ephemeral beauty; The Hanami season begins in March and lasts until May, and if people visit busy cities such as Tokyo or Osaka or buy secret parks and temples, pink and white cherry trees will cover the country from north to south. 

 

Hanami's history is centuries old – it's an ancient tradition, where people would gather every season because they believed that Gods lived within the Sakura trees. The flowers were luminous and exquisite yet brief and ephemeral, seen as a metaphor for life itself. To promote Hanami, one of the Japanese Emperors planted Sakura trees across the country, and it has been a season of significant cultural significance ever since. All the cherry blossom trees were planted using Tsugiki (Grafting) technique. Most trees planted using this technique has the same DNA, which is why most Japanese Sakura blossom and fall at about the same time. Just as Emperors held flower-viewing parties in modern-day Japan, where aristocrats will assemble at the Imperial Palace, once cherry blossoms begin to bloom, the entire country comes together for a huge outdoor party. 

 

Country-wide parks rapidly fill with tourists, and groups gather with picnic blankets and baskets to bathe in the flowering Japanese cherry blossoms trees' pink atmosphere. And celebrations are going long into the evening. In Japan, spring parties are popular both day and night; and in many places, people can find paper lanterns hanging from trees with electric lights to illuminate the blossoms. During Hanami people are merry, drinking sake, eating tempura and engaging in a lot of fun banter. It is a wonderful sight to take in as a tourist but finding a place to sit can sometimes prove difficult. Although it may seem outward that Hanami is, merely an excuse to come together under the blossoms of pretty trees for the Japanese society Hanami is of deeper significance. This reflects the idea of impermanence and encourages everyone to respect the limited time that people share with loved ones.

 

This is the major reason due to which tourist from all over the world love to move here and enjoy their vacations to Japan
