Cherry blossoms are called the symbol of Japanese culture, and have been composed in many tankas (Japanese poems) from old times. From March to April, when the news of cherry blossoms flowering is received from south, people go to see cherry blossoms in a body. Cherry blossoms are in bloom in a short period. Above all, Someiyoshino, which account for 90 percent of all species of Japanese cherry blossoms, is in bloom only 5 days. People enjoy the beauty of the flowers, and feel sorry for them to fall. Kyoto has many famous sights for cherry blossoms. Please enjoy beautiful photos of cherry blossoms. (photo by Sadao Kihara)
