Cherry blossoms at Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, Japan, March 29, 2011. The Japanese Meteorological Agency officially declared the cherry blossom season to have started in Tokyo on March 28, 2011. This was 6 days later than last year because of a cold spring. Normally this is one of the most beautiful times of year to visit Tokyo with many Japanese holding cherry blossom viewing parties in parks across the capital although this year a lot of people are refraining to celebrate considering the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
