Changing times for hanami in Japan

For more than a thousand years, Japanese people have flocked to see and celebrate the blossoming of cherry trees across the country. In this news article from the BBC (click on the link in the title), you can read about how this tradition may be changing because of climate change, and also a possible impact that this would have on feeding Japan’s almost 130 million inhabitants.

  1. HANAMI season has already come to West Japan, probably, it’ll come here in May.
    ” Food Crisis ” has been hitting Japan.
    I can’t believe that Mango fruit has been planting in some place in Hokkaido. The global warming is a big issue, about food, Japan that relays on the imports from other countries have to think better ways of avoiding food crisis.
    My relatives were farmers and they had huge fields before, but now, they became old and their children didn’t take over the farm so my relatives sold their field.
    I love planting, I helped my relatives’ work during my school holidays.
    One of my goals is having my field and planting vegetables and fruits.
    I would plant my favourite KIWI fruit and tomatoes !

    • Mango has been plantED in Japan? Yes, global warming is a big issue, especially for Japan which relIES on imported food a lot.
      It’s a shame your relatives sold their fields, but I hope that one day you can grow your own kiwi fruit and tomatoes, Yuki.
