Spring cherry blossom on Foresterhill Campus

Cherry Blossom at ARI

In Japan, cherry blossom is of great public interest due to traditional custom of enjoying the transient beauty of the flowers, known as hanami. In modern-day Japan, hanami  is celebrated by having picnics beneath the cherry blossom. These parties may be held during the day or at night, when the trees are lit with lanterns.
