The Quiet Beauty of Japan's Cherry Blossoms

From the archives of National Geographic.

Spring in Japan is magical. From late March to mid-April, the country’s iconic sakura (cherry blossoms) blankets the earth in muted wonder. Blossoms begin in Okinawa and moves up-country on its Cherry Blossom-Front or sakura-zensen. The Japanese are dedicated followers of the forecast, holding location-dependent celebrations, or hanami. Here, National Geographic invited photographers to share submissions of the blooms. Witness the quiet charm that is mother nature and contemplate seeing it for yourself the next time around.

To get into the spirit of the celebrations yourself, check out the PUMA SUEDE “Sakura.”
