Cherry flowers

Pale pink covers all over Japan from late in March to the middle of April every year, when cherry blossoms come out and about 30 millions people, about one out of every four, are said to enjoy the viewing party of cherry blossoms, just eating and drinking under the trees.

The Japan Meteorological Agency(気象庁) has predicted the flowering dates of cherry blossoms at this year. But the authority largely corrected the dates and it officially apologized for the mistakes.

I think that Japan seem to be peaceful because the authority apologized for it and people in Japan are eagerly waiting for the coming out of the cherry flowers.

Cerry blossoms would be a delight to see and the paper or fabric in the fan is very nice, it is a special art that your people have to make good prints. I wrote about a Japanese band yesterday.
