Many Japanese, including me, like to see cherry blossoms. Why do we like them? Maybe it is because we can feel spring has come physically.
Last weekend I went to see cherry blossoms with some friends in Maizuru Park, which is one of the most popular spots to see the blossoms in Fukuoka. In this season, we bring some food and drinks and have parties under the trees. I actually went to my company's cherry blossoms festival and had a beer the day before, so it was kind of hard for me to have a beer for the second straight day.
It might be crazy for non-Japanese people that we paint the town red and drink alcohol outside, but this is our spring! I love this season. How about you?
