 Best places to see cherry blossoms in Japan


As spring approaches, the entire nation turns a shade of pink. Months before they arrive, retailers switch into sakura mode – supermarkets filled with plastic cherry blossom flowers and cherry blossom-flavored foods and beverages. The beautiful trees are a common subject of artists and painters, and are a source of great pride for the island nation.

When the blooms arrive (as confirmed by teams of meticulous cherry blossom officials), it is time to indulge in one of the nation’s all-time favourite pastimes – hanami, which literally translates as “looking as flowers” and refers to flower appreciation picnics under the blooms.

But the cherry blossoms aren’t all Japan is prideful about. There are also the moves of Takeshi Kaneshiro, one of Japan’s most popular actors. Despite being effortlessly good-looking, he chooses to strike a sometimes uneasy balance between the commercially pleasing and the quirky in his choice of film roles. Takeshi, sometimes called the Japanese Johnny Depp, has appeared in more than 50 films, though American audiences would know him best from his role as “Jin” in director Yimou Zhang’s (Hero, Raise the Red Lantern) 2004 film House of Flying Daggers. Kaneshiro is also an accomplished singer, having released 9 albums in Japan in both Mandarin and Cantonese.

Join Dr. Hildy and Veronica this week as they discusses Japan’s culture and beauty on One Cell One Light Radio!
