Pictures of Cherry Blossoms Around the World
As spring approaches, a few select places in the world will be graced by the glorious bloom of the cherry blossoms. The tender sakura flowers are famously associated with Japan, where the annual cherry blossom season is a national treasure and a peak tourist season. The practice of cherry blossom viewing is very important to the Japanese, it even has its own word – hanami. People gather for long walks, picnics, or even boat rides at the many viewing spots during sakura season in Japan, according to the cherry blossom forecast dates. The custom has some spiritual roots and is considered a time for reflection in the country.
Away from the Japanese cherry blossom, there are in fact several places around the world where you can enjoy the charm these flowers bring. Korea and Taiwan are leading destinations with quite a few outstanding cherry blossom viewing spots of their own. China also has a few.
