TOKYO: Spring has come to Tokyo as people enjoy “Hanami” which means, in Japanese, viewing cherry blossoms.

Beneath two cherry blossom trees imported from Nagano Prefecture and donated to Shinjuku Ward, viewers could enjoy an early-blooming while listening to traditional music.

Meanwhile, five kimono-dressed musicians played Koto, a Japanese plucked half-tune instrument, and Shakuhachi, a bamboo end-blown flute, tunes of traditional Japanese music.

The ambience created by the soft melodies emitted by the instruments gave passers-by some relief from the extensive news coverage on the war on Ukraine and Covid-19.

The musicians performed well-known classic and contemporary tunes under Tokyo’s first cherry blossoms at the southeast corner of Shinjuku Station, a hub for millions of daily passengers in central Tokyo.

Sakura, or cherry blooming season, is a sacred and festive occasion in Japan.

Every spring news bulletins report during prime-time as to when and where to view bloomed sakura.
