Cherry Blosom Festival in India - Japan is famous for its scintillating cherry blossoms but not ever is fortunate enough to visit there. No worries as India International Cherry Blossom Festival is here to let you witness the magnificence of Cherry Blossoms.
 
The importance of the cherry blossom tree in Japan dates back hundreds of years. In this nation of the East, the cherry blossom signifies the flimsiness and the loveliness of life. It's a aide-mémoire that life is virtually overpoweringly beautiful but that it is also sadly short.
 
No matter what’s the reason behind the emergence of this tree, a large number of people love to embrace them like nothing else. And what’s better than visiting Japan for that. 
 
In Japan, the cherry blossom is more than just a flowering tree. There are millions of cherry blossom trees in Japan, and each year the Japanese people thoroughly antedate and shadow the blossoming of the trees. When the trees are in full bloom, people arrive in large groups with their families and friends to witness these flowers and enjoy their company with food, drink, and music.
