Spring, when you can feel the plants and animals celebrating life up close.
In Hokkaido, where snow covers the ground for a long period of time each year, Spring comes in April. The simultaneous blossoming of various plants, and the scenery taking on different colors takes place as if a video is being fast forwarded. Here, cherry blossoms bloom very late for Japan. The best time to view them is between the end of April and the beginning of May, and many people visit to have one last look at the blossoms for the year.
