Sakura tree

Sakura tree - Photo of a Sakura tree sometime in April this year of 2007. This month and season is celebrated by the Japanese people by going out to the field and do some party under the shade of the flowering sakura trees. They call it "Hanami" literally means viewing flowers.

I missed the Sakura because I was in Japan during winter. But a friend there sent me a picture of the Cherry Blossom. I wish I can see real cherry blossoms in the future.
