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!

I love Japan very much! I like small towns of Japan where I can watch people doing their business and talk to them carefully. They're always friendly. I like Japanese gardens where I can just sit or walk and take my time. Also I like Shinto Jinja as being there I feel in peace. I like to watch sunsets and then to dine in some small local places. I like to soak into onsen after a long day of wandering. I like Japanese crafts very much as all items are made with great taste and skill. Nihon wo daisuki desuyo!
