Cherry blossom blooms in central Tokyo

-- The weather agency announces March 21, 2016, that it has confirmed the first blooming of the season of a "Somei Yoshino" cherry blossom in central Tokyo, five days earlier than usual. When an agency official confirmed the blooming of eight blossoms on a sample tree on the premises of Yasukuni Shrine, he told a number of shrine visitors who had gathered near the tree, "Finally, the cherry blossom has bloomed," to trigger applause. The agency said it will likely take about a week or 10 days for the cherry trees to be fully in bloom.
