Japan in spring - powerful magic of nature
Only a few destinations in the world have a magical atmosphere during spring quite like Japan…
Lively and delicate cherry blossoms are one of the most beautiful wonders of nature and a walk through a pathway stew with petals with inevitable admiration to the beauty of this flower is something that you can only experience in Japan. As a country, Japan offers abundance of mystique and a completely different way of enjoying the simple things, where nothing is brought down to glitz and glamor, but risen to spiritual awakening of our sleeping spirits.
Japanese are people who live totally different lives and have a completely different point of view on reality, in comparison to other parts of the world. In their lives, tradition and culture are firmly established. Japanese women are among the most beautiful in the world, and their good looks, as they themselves say, they owe to moderation and enjoying in every moment of each day.
Well, a simple walk through parks and streets stew with cherry blossom petals is a magical experience which you must live if you wish to understand the magic and power of nature. In order to celebrate the beginning of spring in Japan, National Geographic invited photographers from all around the world to present their vision of this event.
In Japan, cherry blossom is taken really seriously – there’s even a dedicated weather report for this seasons. Cherry blossom go to the north, or the pathway which is known as sakura zensen, while the fans of this beautiful phenomenon follow it through the whole country.
