Hanami or “admiring blooming flowers” is very important for the Japanese culture. Usually, it relates to sakura as it blooms almost first in spring time. But, very soon after sakura there comes blooming of fuji, azalea, iris and all kinds of flowers that you can admire in numerous parks all over Japan. The largest display of flowers, and quite spectacular, are Hitachi Seaside Park, Ashikaga Flower Park, Hitsujiyama Park, Hamamatsu Flower Park and others. April and May are really “flower” months in Japan!
