Its cherry blossom (sakura) time in Japan....

Kyoto cherry blossom

Spring in Japan is the time of "sakura" (=the blossom of a cherry tree). The famous and loved over all cherry blossom brings locals and tourists together. From end of March till beginning of May the colourful clouds of blossoms can be admired in different parts of the country. Through the whole year sakura is omen for good luck and at the same time symbol for love and affection. All over Japan there are more than 200 cultivars of these cherry trees.
