Sakura in High Park

The Japanese celebration of Hanami centers around the delicate and beautiful cherry blossom (sakura) tree. The cherry blossom blooms for a very short while each spring. The windier the spring the shorter the bloom.

It is during this time you will see people sitting under trees having a meal spending time with nature.

The cherry blossom is a joyful symbol of life.
