Spring has come! I really feel good because I'm neither cold nor hot in this season!
Especially when I walk along with the beautiful cherry blossoms, I feel happiness--I don't need anything else! but these beautiful, baby pink flowers!!
However, the best season with the cherry blossom doesn't last long...at most 7-8 days, usually.
That's why people here in Japan have special feelings when they admire the flower.
(As the flower with sentimental, bitter-sweet memories, in the midst of graduation season=fiscal/business year starts in April=here!)
But, thanks to the less-than-usual rain and colder-than-expected weather of this year, we could enjoy being love with the cherry blossoms from March 23 to April 8 in Tokyo (and could be much longer in northern regions).
Many freshmen were greeted by the flowers this year at their entrance ceremonies for schools and companies/institutions. So the cherry blossom of this year may be a symbol of hopes, rather than sentimental farewells. And...I'm glad for them=freshmen and cherry blossoms!=too!!!
