Tokyo Enjoys The Cherry Blossoms

The cherry blossoms in the parks of Japan is a real treat. Along the main alley of the most popular Park Tokyo Ueno the flow is moving very slowly, resembling a huge queue, rather than walking. Along the alley - the place for those who prefer to leisurely admire the flower-strewn trees together with friends over a Cup of sake. Best places take a few days.
A mandatory attribute of this event - tent-yatai with different food: calamari, fried in sauce, chicken skewers, grilled fish, octopus, noodles with vegetables, drinks for every taste.
During blossom parks offer plenty of fun for kids - make a ring toss, shooting gallery, catching goldfish. This is a favorite national pastime. Fish swim in huge pots, you need to catch paper strainer at least one so that it does not tear. Caught prey, the children take home. Often those who are not having any luck, give the fish just so as not to spoil the fun. Sometimes, instead of the fish catch of aquatic turtles.
In 2013, the cherry blossoms in the capital of Japan started earlier than usual due to the very warm weather. The petals of fully opened flowers begin to fall. The blossom front moves from South to North, the island of Hokkaido - the northernmost point of Japan - it will reach in early may.
