Cherry trees in full blossom in Tokyo

posted on April 3, 2016

Cherry trees in Tokyo and other cities in Japan are in full blossom -- a sign that spring has arrived.

In a spring ritual, the Meteorological Agency on Thursday made the announcement for Tokyo, Nagoya and other cites, based on its observation of flowers on local sample trees.

Temperatures in most of the cities on Thursday rose above 20 degrees Celsius -- warm enough for cherry trees to fully bloom.
