Are you as excited for this year’s sakura season as we are? (◕‿◕✿)
The blossoms are going to be a bit late this year though, because of the much colder weather last month!
(Trivia: The buds initially need cold temperature to start developing, but afterwards, they need a warmer weather to continue to grow, and eventually, blossom!) (✿◠‿◠)
This is kind of a good news to those who still want to catch a trip to Japan to enjoy hanami (flower/cherry blossom viewing), while munching on a chewy, yummy dango!
Get updated with the (approximately) best time to experience the beautiful cherry blossoms by checking out this link (Sakura Forecast 2014).
