Sakura, or the Japanese cherry blossom, is one of the most popular symbols in Japanese culture. Formerly this flower was related to the samurai warriors and therefore it was idolized, they considered that they were somehow two similar beings since both used to enjoy a short life.
The cherry trees remain completely naked during the winter and exclusively with their leaves the rest of the year, but for a short period of time, towards the beginning of spring, they bloom, decorating the country’s parks with their beautiful pink and white flowers.
Japan is an elongated country, this generates a big difference regarding the time in which cherry trees start to blossom between the the northern and southern areas of the country.
