Have you ever seen Sakura?
Our group is named after Sakura, which is a famous flower in Japan.
Actually Sakura means Cherry blossom in English.
It is a kind of flower than can represent Japan since Japanese have special feelings
about Sakura. It is so beautiful, but only appears for a very short period in a year.
This has become a metaphor of men's life....
"Hanami" is the centuries-old practice of picnicking under
a blooming sakura tree.
In Tokyo, one of the the most famous places for Hanami is Ueno Koen(Park).
People sit under the trees full of flowers, drink beers and have meals.
There are many websites that forecast when the blossoming begins.
You can see a graph like the one below.
This year, it is forecast that the blossoming of Sakura will begin on 26 Mar.
Please come that time to enjoy the once for a year event in Tokyo!
