I've heard of April in Paris, but never knew about April in Japan! Each year their pink sakura trees bloom and come to life before you eyes. Below you'll see some of the most gorgeous photos of this exciting time or year.
It's difficult scheduling a time to visit, because the blooming periods vary.
And as we all know, nature has a mind of its own.
The flower blooms also only stay around for a short, limited amount of time.
Sometimes they're only around for one week
Even less if the weather isn't ideal
They appear on trees before the leaves come in, giving the trees amazing hues
Locals believe that they're metaphorical for the short nature of life.
There are over 100 varieties of cherry trees in Japan, so the colors vary
From a pale lavender...
...To an amazing pink
And all of the gorgeous shades in between!
Numerous cherry blossom festivals are held all over Japan.
Depending on the climate, cherry blossom season varies.
So, if you have the opportunity to be in Japan during this season...
Be sure to capture this amazing moment that only happens once a year!
