Cherry Blossom Viewing
Between March and May cherry blossom viewing (hanami) parties assemble all over Japan, the exact dates depending on the ripening
blossom in the particular region. Local television stations give updates on the state of blossom ripeness in each area. The
most popular place to see the blossom in Tokyo is Ueno Park, and in Kyoto, the gardens of the Heian Shrine.
