Every year during spring, thousands of tourists flock to Japan to view the magnificent spectacle of the nation’s cherry blossom blooming season.
Centred around the last bit of March to the first half of April, visitors can join locals in the traditional custom of hanami (cherry blossom viewing), and experience the splendour that is the ephemeral beauty of Japan’s national flower.
