The cherry blossoms usually bloom for only about a week after full-bloom. The small, round shape flowers flutter to the ground gracefully and the blossoms are said to be the most beautiful at their final stage. For many Japanese people, the blooming of the cherry trees symbolize human life, transience and nobleness. They celebrate and cherish their beauty while it lasts.
The first day of blooming (kaika) in Tokyo this season was 20 March, and in Kyoto was 25 March. The full bloom will be one week after from the day of first bloom.
