Hanami ; Japan’s famous flowers.

Hanami is a special time of the year in Japan where the famous Sakura(cherry blossom) appears for not even a month. There are other flowers in abundance but the real delight is the Sakura as they are a symbol of beauty and impermanence because of their short lifespan.

During this time people flock from all for a chance to view these flowers and sit underneath a warm sky enjoying a gentle breeze surrounded by Sakura trees.

I and my dormmates were not immune to the crazed sickness of hunting sakura flowers as we traveled around Nagoya to see them at the local famous spots.

Not even the rain could stop the need for sakura viewing.
