Cherry blossoms come out between late March and April in Japan.

We enjoy eating and drinking with family, friends or co-workers under the fully bloomed cherry blossoms.

In the Japanese mentality, this short period in full bloom and the beauty of these cherry blossoms are often metaphorically compared to human life.

Sakura reminds us how human life is short and fragile, but then again, so beautiful.
