Sakura - The Cherry Blossom Festival

( No user reviews )

Also known under the Japanese name of Sakura Festival, sakura meaning 'Japanese flowering cherry'.

A truly amazing scenery, a sea of color everywhere you look. And the color is not all. The smell, the traditional paper lanterns and the costumes complete this magnificent festival.

This surreal show of the cherry blossom can be admired from January to June in different regions of Japan, but most of the cherry blossom festivals are being held between March and May. Beside admiring the gorgeous flowers, you can watch Japanese artists performing or join a tea ceremony held under the cherry trees. This will be a unique experience. In the evening, the festivals hold light-up events.

This is one festival you can't miss.
