In Japan, the cherry blossom is of great public interest due to the custom of flower viewing known as hanami. The Japan Meteorological Agency records the opening and full bloom of the blossoms from Kyūshū in late March to Hokkaidō in the middle of May. The advancing front is also the subject of regular reports by the major news agencies.
