Japanese cherry blossom festival hit by Covid restrictions - BBC News



Japan’s cherry trees began their annual bloom nearly two weeks ahead of schedule. Cherry blossom – also known as Sakura – is the country’s national flower.

This year coronavirus restrictions mean that people are not allowed to get together for family picnics and tourists are not able to fly to the country to see the blossom.

People from all over the country normally come together to celebrate by visiting parks and throwing big picnics called hanami, and eating special blossom-themed food.

  1. One of your ex-journalists, Alex Belfield, reports about collusion between the BBC and Nottinghamshire Police in a campaign of harassment, illegal and unwarranted searches at his home, the confiscation of technical equipment and being bailed without charge after a few minutes of interview. He has recently posted the video of officers, that are displaying no identification numbers on their collars as they seem to have been removed, threatening to kick his door in (which they subsequently did, and bullying the man without charge or even accusation.
    Will the BBC please report on this and tell us of what charges they accuse this man and why this campaign seems to be totally without legal or moral reason.
    prosecute

  2. it's not only in japan to see cherry blossom, when i went to europe i see flower like cherry blossom. i like that flower, but sakura makes me relax, comfortable indeed. that's why it's written in our soul

  3. I'm Japanese and this year, local cherry blossom festival in my hometown was canceled.
    Local people always look forward to it.
    I hope we cooperate each other and overcome so that we can enjoy and share the precious moment together!

  4. I was born and raised in America and it is so disappointing and disrespectful to see the people here not following the pandemic rules. They go on vacation, get together with family and friends, play high school and college sports etc. It' s no wonder why we continue to have high Covid rates and many deaths.
