No need to wait until March to attend Japan's annual Cherry Blossom Festival, residents of Hanoi can already admire the beautiful flower in the heart of the capital.

Hanoi is in the middle of spring, the weather is cold and wet, which favors the blooming of all kinds of flowers, including Japanese cherry.

 Cherry blossom or Sakura blooms brightly on the corner of Thuy Khue Street in Ba Dinh District, adorning the beauty of Hanoi in spring.
 A cherry blossom, also known as Japanese cherry or sakura, is a flower of many trees of the genus Prunus. They are common species in East Asia, such as China, Korea and especially Japan.
In 1997, Japanese friends gave these plants to the people of Hanoi as a token of friendship between the two countries.

At that time, about 100 prunus were planted in Viet Nhat Village on Thuy Khue Street, but different climatic and soil conditions kill many.

Sakura is considered the national flower of Japan, omnipresent in everything from traditional Japanese painting to everyday household appliances, such as ceramics and furniture, among many others.

 Arriving in Hanoi, the wonderful flower has captured the hearts of many Hanoians. 
These Sakura bloom at the same time this year, not only gracing the streets of Hanoi but also bringing Japanese pride and culture closer to the city's people. 
 Cherry blossoms showcase their transient beauty amid humid and cold weather in Hanoi, epitomizing the strong spirit of the Japanese. 
 Their soft scent of blossom also brings vibrancy and optimism to this old street in the heart of Hanoi. 
The cherry blossom season lasts only about a month. Don't miss the only opportunity of the year to admire the beauty of the blossoms.
