Cherry blossom – Hanami “flower viewing” in Japan

Hanami (花見 “flower viewing”) was one of my most enjoyable activities in an 2015 Tokyo trip visiting multiple cherry blossom viewing areas. Here are two NHK Japanology clips that give you some ideas and they are a lot of fun and informative to watch. NHK has done a great job with the Japanology series.

Japanology Plus – Episode 08: Cherry Trees (28 minutes) I LOVE the old gentleman expert at the 4:46 mark, so insightful and a national treasure!

Begin Japanology Special Mini – Ep04: Cherry Blossom (5 minutes)
