It is a time of new beginnings and renewal. A blanket of pink and white flowers magnificently envelope the country. This fairy tale-like backdrop is complemented by a festive and social atmosphere. The tradition of hanami – a picnic where friends, families and work colleagues meet under the cover of blossoms – has been around for centuries and is whole-heartedly still embraced by the Japanese people.Generally the trees bloom from late March to mid-April, for several weeks only. We invite you to join us in 2018 and witness this beautiful phenomenon for yourself!
