Spring is the best season for traveling to Japan. In this season too, there is “Golden Week”, what is holiday for Japanese. Golden week usually runs a week, and so many people come to tourism places for refreshing. Beside, one of thing that most interesting is SAKURA. Sakura is identity of Japan. This flower just grows up in spring seasons. Generally, Sakura in Hokkaido sprout one month slow then other places in Japan such as Kyoto, Tokyo, Sendai, etc. so, we can see the Sakura in Sapporo, around last of April to the second week of May. In Sapporo so many places for Hanami. Such as:

Besides Sakura, in Sapporo there are species of tulip. Tulip is flower from Holland, but it can grow in Japan. Even the number is not much, I think, it is enough to see event going to Holland. tulip has many colours. And we can find it around Sapporo. Based on my experience, the good places to see this flower is in Maruyama Park.

         In additional, we also can find some kinds of flowers in Sapporo. Most of them have shapes and colours are beautilful. The flowers such as:

        I am very grateful for this moment. Spring has already given me many important  experiences and lessons about Japanese culture, Sakura and other flowers. I hope one day, I will meet again with spiring in Japan especially in Sapporo. Maybe for traveling or doctor course program. Amien.
