Cherry blossoms and autumn leaves are great indicators for the change of the seasons, together, of course, with the humidity in summer and the snow in winter. You would think that people who have lived in Japan for a long time would probably have got tired of getting out with thousands of others to see the cherry trees. But the truth is cherry blossoms have more attraction than anyone thinks. At least much more than I had thought. They seem to have this magical pull on me—- I gasped in awe when I saw the huge cherry tree in Rikugien. The light pink in contrast with the clear blue sky makes up such a beautiful Japanese color. It’s an important part of people’s life, sentiments, and traditions. 銀座校インストラクター ミチェル
