The cherry blossom is possibly one of the most aromatic trees in existence. In Japan this tree is part of the culture and it is customary to hold a festival in its honor. It blooms in spring and is known in Japanese culture as “sakura,” and friends and family gather around the cherry trees to celebrate the festival of “Hanami”.
Thousands of people spend the day sitting by the cherry blossoms, eating and drinking with their loved ones. They have a good time and enjoy the unmistakable aroma of the cherry blossom. No doubt it must be quite an experience to be able to enjoy this festivity.
