  The best time for Hanami (花見, Cherry blossom viewing) came late last week in Kamakura. We can enjoy fully blooming Sakura - cherry flowers all around the city this week end, while some trees are already loosing flowers like at Myohonji, Jojuin, and Hokaiji.

 

  Ironically, the best time means that the end of Hanami season is coming.

  Cherry flowers last for just 2 weeks at most once they blossom. Usually a windy day comes during that period and shortens viewing times.

  That end by the wind is one of the best viewing moments because we can enjoy Hanafubuki (shower of petals). It is fantastic to see Hanafubuki if it occurs under the blue sky. That looks a curtain call, but flowers will not show until the next spring. Instead, green leaves come out.
