Hanami in Tokyo, Japan: beneath the cherry blossoms

In Japan, the year is divided by events of nature. Cherry blossoms. Fireflies. The autumn moon. The changing colours of the leaves. Japanese people admire these signs of change in nature and celebrate them. Hanami, or cherry blossom viewing party is a significant event in the calendar symbolizing the beginning of spring. In my opinion, one of the best times to be in Japan…I mean, what’s better than drinking, laughing, eating, chatting under the warm sun?

Here are some iPhone snaps:
