Japan is a nation that takes Spring very seriously. In particlar, it's the blossom that they're into, and more specifically, cherry blossom. In fact, there's a huge amount of effort that goes into predicting when the first blossoms will arrive. People would take time off work to sit under the trees and admire. Incredibly expensive camera equipment is used to photograph yet another almost identical blossom. Some especially determined people will follow the blossoms as they bloom and move up through the length of the country !
