| In this time every year, we can see cherry blossoms have bloomed around Japan. There are many Sakura cherry blossoms tree from a single tree to forests in towns, parks, temples, and so on in Japan. When seeing Sakura flower, Some Japanese realize that the tree is Sakura. Before or after that, they may not identify what the tree is.|
The flower season is short. You can see the full blooms only a few days. Temperature in this season fluctuates, and then we don't know the certain date when the flowers come.
