Japan's cherry blossoms aren't just pretty flowers blossoming for a very short time. For centuries, a rich and deep culture developed surrounding the fleeting sakura. But why is the country so fascinated with the sakura phenomenon since centuries ago?
Every year, this cherry blossom market grows larger and the range of products and food centered on the flowers increase. Especially dessert creations and sweets are plentifully available during March and April when Japan actually experiences the beautiful cherry blossom.
