To Dear Scout Friends,
It is now spring in Japan! We have had a long and cold winter, but here in Yokohama and Tokyo area, we are surrounded by cherry blossom.
Because Japan is stretched from south to north, the cherry blossom time differ by each region. Japanese people love cherry blossom and enjoy the blossom with friends and family. We may walk through to see those beautiful cherry blossoms, but most common event is to hold a party under the blossom which may be a unique tradition of Japan.
Yokohama and Tokyo area have announced the full blossom last Friday, but East and North Japan is still yet to come.
