Cherry Blossom Front; "Sakura-Zensen"

Dear Friends;  today I will introduce you about Cherry Blossom Front link
or "Sakura-zensen" in Japanese. 
Cherry blossom season has finally arrived in Japan♪♪♪
Sakura-zensen is a chart on map of Japan which the date of cherry blossoms will bloom in spring. The Japan Meteorological Agency records the opening and full bloom of the blossoms. You might think it funny, but in the weather forecast news on TV report the date as well as in the news paper. So we can know when is the best time to view cherry blossoms. The transient beautiful blossoms can be a tiny benefit of being born as a Japanese. Sakura-zensen starts from Okinawa in March and reaches Hokkaido in May. Oh, it is a happy bright coming of spring sign♡♡♡
                                                        Love you always Miyako*

Dearest Orchid,

Oh, we know the special meaning of the cherry blossoms for the Japanese people! Here in the city of Macon (1 hour driving) we have a huge Cherry Blossom Festival due to the presence of a large YKK plant, also one in our city. There live lots of Japanese families in our area.
Hope your Soba dinner went well and that you had a great time.
Love to you,

Mariette
