Sakura in Bucuresti

RO: Ce-i drept, sezonul ciresilor rozalii s-a cam dus in Japonia. Site-urile de predictie a sakurei ne spun ca cea mai infloritoare perioada a fost la inceput de aprilie, cel putin pentru Tokyo si Kyoto. Si adevarul e ca ni se face un dor nebun de Tara Soarelui Rasare, de perioada de varf a ciresilor, de hanami-urile din parcurile din Tokyo, un fel de picnic pe paturici albastre, cu o sticla de sake dosita dupa noi, uitandu-ne intruna la florile mititele de cires, de yozakura (sakura pe timp de noapte) spectaculoase in parcul Ueno sau si mai si, la Meiji Shrine. Ne e dor de senzatia aceea de speranta si reinnoire pe care ti-o dau florile de cires. Pentru ca da, ele reprezinta mai mult decat un simplu inceput de primavara. Sunt un simbol al Japoniei, o adevarata imagine emblematica a tarii. Dar cum n-avem drum pe tinuturi nipone anul acesta (desi cu greeeeu ne-am stapanit tentatiile zilele trecute cand mai-mai sa dam submit la niste bilete catre Tokyo :D), ne facem damblaua “sakureasca” cu minunatiile de ciresi roz infloriti in Gradina Japoneza din Herastrau. De nu i-ati vazut inca, mergeti neaparat zilele acestea, cat mai sunt inca infloriti si nescuturati de vant si ploi 🙂

EN: Honestly, the cherry blossom season is already over in Japan. All the sakura prediction sites tell us that the peak period was at the beginning of April, at least for Tokyo and Kyoto. And the truth is that we miss The Country of Rising Sun like hell! We miss the high peak of cherry blossom, the hanamis in Tokyo’s park – a kind of picnic on blue blankets, with a sake bottle in our bag, watching the small cherry flowers, we miss the spectacular yozakura (sakura at midnight) in Ueno Park or even better, at Meiji Shrine. We miss that feeling of hope and renewal that the cherry flowers offer us. Because yes, indeed, they are more than just a simple spring beginning. They are a symbol of Japan, a truly iconic image of the country. But as we do not have any trip planned this year to Nipponese lands (though it was really haaaaard not to be tempted the other days when we almost hit the submit button for some airplane tickets to Tokyo :D), we’ll get enough of sakura in the gorgeous Japanese Garden in Herastrau Park. If you haven’t seen them yet, you really have to go these days, while they are still blooming and not yet shake down by the wind and rain.   Sakura in Bucuresti_2
