Today, the sun showed it’s face after so many cloudy and rainy days…
Everyone went to Hanami, including Uni.
The following Text was taken from my other blog entry:
The beauty of this flower is appreciated by most Japanese – I think that many Japanese people love the “Sakura.”
For many, it reminds them of a new start – that comes with Spring.
April in Japan is the “beginning of a new year” ; it is “the start” of a new year for students, and for fresh graduates who will enter their new companies, a new life.
So, the blooming of the cherry blossoms can mean a lot to more people who are in this phase of their lives.
The beauty of these flowers is also so much appreciated because – we wait for it to bloom for a year, and it only stays for about a week or two.
Personally, when I am in Japan, I enjoy my birthday because the sakuras are usually in full bloom. 😀
Hanami comes from the words- “Hana” – flower, and the verb “Miru” – to watch or view, therefore, it means” flower watching.”
