The cherry blossom is synonymous with Japan and very much connected to the Japanese culture and identity. As winter fades and spring comes to Japan, the cherry blossom trees burst into bloom.

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!
