Spring
Believe it or not, it's almost spring! Springtime is a time of change, new beginnings and renewal. The school year ends end in March and the new year begins in April. Companies also follow a similar calendar. The spring is a very important time for farmers to make preparations for planting rice. It's also a time where many events and festivals are held throughout the country. Such as sakura or cherry blossom events and the Haru Matsuri, haru means spring and matsuri means festival. Many springtime festivals are about wishing for a good fall harvest or to celebrate the survival of the winter season. This is the perfect time to visit, the weather is starting to warm up, the air is clear and the bright pink cherry blossoms are blooming.
