Sakura is the term used for the cherry blossom. This term is used for wide range of cherry related trees. Some of them does not produce fruits some of them does. This term comes from Japan. In the past, japanese people used to have picnics under the sakura or ume trees that were called Hanami.
In every japanese movie, the scene where the beautiful japanese girl is under a blooming cherry tree just can not be omitted. The moment when the wind blows thru the cherry tree, and the flowers fly in the sky is priceless. In this article there are photos of the Sakura in Japan.
Hanami, or flower viewing, is the annual Japanese custom of enjoying the blooming foliage after the winter weather subsides. While hanami specifically refers to the blooming of cherry blossoms, many plan events around the one to two week period where nature flourishes with color and fragrances.
Hokkaido is where plum and cherry trees blossom at the same time. Goryokaku was a western-style fort built by the Tokugawa shogunate (1857-66) in the harbour city of Hakodate.
