This month’s theme is “Sakura” (the cherry blossoms).
As a flower symbolizing spring, “Sakura” is familiar to Japanese people, and the majority of Japanese like “Sakura”.
“Sakura” is one of the special flowers in Japan.
For example, the flowering of “Sakura” is used as the signal to start agriculture from the ancient days.
In Japanese spring, “Sakura” trees will be started blossoming all at once.
The most beautiful period of cherry blossoms is very short, which is compared to the fragility of life.
Well, we will enjoy “Hanami” (cherry blossom viewing) during the short “Sakura” peak period. When once Sakura is in full bloom, the Japanese gather
under the Sakura trees and do picnic parties to enjoy the dazzling blossoms as well as food and drinks.
Daytime “Hanami” is wonderful, but the cherry blossoms that were lighted up at night are exceptional. It is called “Yozakura” (Night cherry blossoms).
In parks that are famous for “Hanami”, you can enjoy to light up the “Sakura” for a limited time and enjoy the “Yozakura”.
However, even “Sakura” that is not light up can be enjoyed in the moonlight, which makes you feel very elegant.
The “Sakura” please us very beautifully in the daytime at night all day.
