Enjoying Easter And the Sakura

Domo-kun couldn’t be more happy wearing his Easter Bunny outfit and standing in front of the Sakura (Cherry) Blossoms at there full bloom.  The cherry blossoms are celebrated in Japan.  Sitting under the blossoms or “Hanami” is the centuries-old practice that started in the Nara period in the 8th century and it continues to this day as people gather around and enjoy the blossoms with there friends and family.

This year Easter and the Sakura fall together here in Japan making for a wonderful weekend as temperatures linger in to the mid-teens.

From all of us here at Westernpacificweather.com we wish you a wonderful holiday weekend for you and your loved ones.
