Finally! Temperatures on the day-time have reached values which make it possible to walk around without thick jackets. Now the increasing power of the sun-light can be noticed day-by-day, what makes me hope that jerry blossom will start soon. Although I am a foreigner (“gaijin”) in Japan, the special mood and atmosphere around the season of the blooming trees catches me every year. Thus “Ohanami” (i.e. the picknick-like celebration of cherry blossom) is surely one of the things that someone should have experienced when staying longer in Japan.
