In Japan there is a word "Ohanami".
It literally means to see flowers.
However, in reality it means cherry-blossom viewing party.
It is the season when the cherry blossoms bloom.
Cherry blossoms bloom between late March and early April in Nara Park.
In this period of evert year, on TV, we often let you know where the cherry blossoms bloomed.
On Saturday it was said on TV that cherry blossoms were in full bloom in Tokyo.
It said that this is 10 days earlier than normal.
And this year, it seems that everywhere is about one week earlier than the average year.
[The cherry blossoms at Nara Park]
On last Friday, the cherry blossoms at Nara Park had only a few trees with a few flowers.
Today, some trees were blooming with many flowers.
As the cherry blossoms begin to bloom, they will bloom one after another.
And usually one week later it will be in full bloom.
The period during which the cherry trees are blossoming is not long.
Most of the flowers have been scattered around one week after it is in full bloom.
Cherry blossoms don't gradually bloom and don't gradually scatter.
Cherry blossoms bloom at once and scatter at once.
There are no leaves when cherry blossoms are blooming.
So they are very beautiful.
It seems that cherry blossoms at Nara Park will be in full bloom around this weekend.
The next Friday, Saturday and Sunday seem to be fine.
There will be many colleagues of the companies here on Friday evening.
There will be many family and friends on Saturday and Sunday.
They enjoy chatting, eating and drinking and sometimes seeing the cherry blossoms with them under the fully bloomed cherry blossoms.
