I LOVE JAPAN ❤ 日本の今を伝えたい! Cherry Blossom Viewing Parties Across Japan お花見


Although there is a long list of what are the most popular spots for “hanami,” or cherry blossom viewing, in Tokyo, including Chidoriga Fuchi, Shinjuku Gyoen, Sumida River — you name it — Meguro River, running through Naka-Meguro towards Ikejiri Ohashi, may be one of the hottest venues to appreciate “sakura,” or cherry blossoms.

東京の花見スポットは数えきれないほどありますが — 千鳥ヶ淵、新宿御苑、隅田川、等々– 今最も人気のあるスポットの1つが目黒川、特に中目黒から池尻大橋辺りではないでしょうか。

Since I live in Naka-Meguro, my friends and I, every year, on our way back from “hanami lunch” at a French bistro or a Mediterranean restaurant nearby, go and see this long scenic stretch of Meguro River with cherry blossoms on both sides, making it a long, beautiful flower tunnel.

The weather forecast reports the “sakura” front to give us the most accurate weather forecast for cherry blossoming viewing. From Okinawa to Hokkaido, Japanese people really enjoy “hanami” because it marks the true beginning of the spring season, and a new chapter in life is celebrated with cherry blossoms, like the school entrance ceremony or a new start in society. In Japan, the school year and the government’s fiscal year starts in April and ends in the following March.

天気予報は桜前線を発表して花見に最適の情報を伝えてくれます。沖縄から北海道まで、日本人は花見が大好きです。というのも花見は本当の意味での春の訪れの象徴であり、人生の門出は桜と共に祝うからです… 入学式や入社式などですね。日本の学校や役所の会計年度は4月に始まり3月に終わります。
