People in Japan are eagerly following sakura-zensen, blossom forecast announced each year by the Weather Bureau. The forecast is a must for those planning Hanami, the blossom ritual with outdoor parties beneath flowering cherry trees.

According to the tradition from the 3rd century AD, Japanese gather in parks and temples to admire blossoms. However, you do not have to travel all the way to Japan for your own Hanami, literary meaning flower viewing. Just find a blooming tree in the neighbourhood and indulge in its blossoms. It is Hanami time.
