Hanami,
Cherry Blossom Viewing

Enjoying a cup of green tea while viewing the Sakura Cherry Blossoms has long been a celebrated tradition in Japan. Known as hanami, the tradition first appeared during the Heian period (794-1185). Literally translating to "flower viewing", it usually involves admiring cherry blossom trees with family, friends and colleagues. Today, many take the opportunity to have a picnic or a "hanami party", sipping nature's finest tea leaf while admiring the pink blossoms that represent a time of renewal and the arrival of Spring.
