Cherry blossoms are in full bloom in most parts of Japan. I used to see them in a daylight when younger, but these recent years I go see them at night. It looks far more beautiful and outlandish in the faint light disappearing into the darkness. There, we can see the spirit of Japanese cherry blossoms – snowy white flower petals so faint and weak and temporary… Looks like ghostly spirits reaching out to see us only one week a year.
The best way to enjoy the season is to have some sake alone under the tree at night, feeling spirits and the weight of tradition of the 15 centuries.
