In Japan, cherry blossom season though short-lived is significant as it represents “fragility, transience and beauty of life”. Cherry blossoms bloom gradually moving from south to north of Japan, peaking into a national celebration called hanami with picnics held under the blooming trees.

This sheer gorgeousness and visual feast of cherry blossoms is one that takes one’s breath away and it infuses hope, romance and natural beauty in a world that is so often focused on the man-made and instantaneous.
