Sakura Forecast!


The Japanese Meteorological Agency has announced it's cherry blossom forecast, just in time to start planning for the upcoming hanami (blossom veiwing) season. As I've said before, the Japanese take their sakura very seriously.

The sakura are out in Victoria in full bloom! I swear, every lawn has a cherry tree in various shades of pink. Sadly, the blossoms emit no odour at all. It's so close to my memories, and yet miles away from it being right.

If you'd like to read an interesting book about this subject from a Canadian perspective, read Will Ferguson's Hokkaido Highway Blues. He hitchhikes the whole length of Japan on the Sakura trail.
