About Cherry Blossom
Cherry Blossom is the generic name for the flowers of the trees belongs to the Prunus genus. These trees produce unsavoury fruits and edible cherries. The blooming season of the cherry blossoms has deep symbolism in many countries but not more than in Japan. The most important determiner of the timing of the blossoming is the geographical location. Milder the climate, earlier the flower blooms. So, if you wish to see the mesmerising sakura blooms, plan your Cherry Blossom vacation package accordingly. In countries like Japan, the cherry blossom or sakura season can extend from January up to May. Not all flowers are pink, the colours can vary from white, pale pink, and rich pink to even yellow and green.
Cultural Significance of Cherry Blossom
The cultural and social symbolism associated with the blooming of the cherry blossoms is most pronounced in Japan. And this makes Japan the best place to see the cherry blossoms. The most popular variety of cherry blossom in Japan is the Somei Yoshino, with white flowers and a hint of pink blush. People wait for the whole year for the flowers to bloom. Hanami which literally translates to ‘flower viewing’ is more than an event, it is an emotion. Both domestic and international tourists flock to Japan on Cherry Blossom packages to witness the spectacular Cherry Blossom Festival. The trees, full of beautiful flowers, appear to be huge fluffs of clouds. The tradition of celebrating the Cherry Tree Festival as Hanami goes back hundreds of years. Hanami is celebrated in many different ways and holds a different meaning for different kinds of travellers on a Cherry Blossom tour. It could be a serene walk in a park, or it could be a get together of family and friends over a picnic under the sakura tree. This tradition of having a picnic is taken so seriously by some that a picnic spot is reserved much before the blooming period.
The Experience of a Cherry Blossom Festival
Tourists on Cherry Blossom vacation packages are amazed to see groups of people having a lot of fun and excitement with the flowers keeping them company. The Cherry Blossom tours capture the essence of the joie de vivre at this time of the year. Over the years, the Hanami, celebrating the Cherry Tree Festival, has taken a different dimension. From a simple picnic under the trees, today, hanami means an exclusive private party. There are many opportunities where foreign visitors on Cherry Blossom packages can celebrate hanami on a Cherry Blossom tour.
