Sakura blossoms have deep significance in Japanese culture. The start of Sakura season marks the start of Spring and symbolizes new beginnings. Sakura season reminds us that life is beautiful and fleeting, as the cherry blossom blooms only last about two weeks. During this time, Japanese people often enjoy festivities such as eating and drinking under the Sakura trees while enjoying the beautiful atmosphere.
