Tokyo becomes just like heaven in spring

Japan is a beautiful country in many ways. Japan islands are surrounded by ocean. 60% of her land is covered by mountains. There are many historical places. Unfortunately, Tokyo, her capital is concrete jungle and not so pretty usually. However, there is one time entire Japan including even Tokyo becomes like part of heaven.

It is spring time end of March and early April when Cherry trees become full blossom. Wherever you go in Japan, you cannot even avoid to see Chery Flowers. All the flowers are pretty, but Cherry Flowers are special. Cherry Flowers are all light pink color almost white. When they become full blossom, trees have just flowers, no leaves. There are some famous places for Cherry Flowers full Blossoms.

My mother lives in western outskirt of Tokyo, the town called Fuchu-shi. The city is full of Cherry Flowers in spring. There is a street both side were lined up with Cherry Trees. These cherry trees in the season of full blossom form tunnel of Cherry Flowers.

This is the time only in a year, when even Tokyo becomes like heaven in Japan.

Thank you for your comment. I hope you will visit there soon. If you want the best season for Cherry Blossom, it will be last week of March and first week of April. When you have your plan, please let me know.

Hello Hilary,

Thank you for your comment as always. US has famous places for Cherry, but it is something if you visit almost all Tokyo is covered by Cherry Flowers.

I hope you have some time visit there, soon.

Thank you for your comment. When you visit there in right season, almost you cannot avoid them. Many school yards have 5 - 10 trees congratulating freshmen of the schools. Please come visit Japan, too.

Thanks, again.
