Globalization is an important part of world life. Every country has her own customs and traditions…. And some of them are already international and play a very important role in culture developing of Englishspeaking countries, for instance HANAMI... 春の雨、 優しくしてください 桜 称賛に向けて出発 見ていない人たち 柿本人麻呂 Spring rain, please be gentle leave cherry blossoms for admiring for those who have not seen. Kakinomoto no Hitomaro Hanami is the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers, "flower" in this case almost always meaning cherry blossoms ("sakura") or plum blossoms ("ume"). The custom is said to have started during the Nara Period (710–794) when people admired ume blossoms. By the Heian Period (794–1185), cherry blossoms came to attract more attention and hanami was synonymous with sakura. Every year the Japanese Meteorological Agency and the public track the sakura zensen (cherry blossom front) as it moves northward up the archipelago. Japanese pay close attention to these forecasts because the blossoms only last a week or two. In modern-day Japan, hanami mostly consists of having an outdoor party beneath the sakura during daytime or at night. People turn out in large numbers at parks, shrines, and temples with family and friends to hold flower-viewing parties. Hanami festivals celebrate the beauty of the cherry blossom and for many are a chance to relax and enjoy the beautiful view. Thousands of people fill the parks to hold feasts under the flowering trees, and sometimes these parties go on until late at night. In more than half of Japan, the cherry blossoming days come at the same time of the beginning of school and work after vacation, and so welcoming parties are often opened with hanami. Usually, people go to the parks to keep the best places to celebrate hanami many hours or even days before. In cities like Tokyo, it's also common to have celebrations under the sakura at night. Hanami at night is called yozakura. In many places such as Ueno Park temporary paper lanterns are hung for the purpose of yozakura. On the island of Okinawa, decorative electric lanterns are hung in the trees for evening enjoyment. The hanami celebrations usually involve eating and drinking, and playing and listening to music. Some special dishes are prepared and eaten at the occasion, like dango and bento, and sake is commonly drunk as part of the festivity. Cherry blossoms are richly symbolic, and have been utilized often in Japanese art, manga, anime, and film, as well as at musical performances for ambient effect. There is at least one popular folk song, originally meant for the shakuhachi (bamboo flute), titled "Sakura", and several pop songs. The flower is also represented on all manner of consumer goods in Japan, including kimono, stationery, coins, and dishware. The cherry blossom was also used to motivate the Japanese people, to stoke militarism among the populace, to inspire "Japanese spirit." Japanese painted them on the sides of their planes before embarking on a suicide mission, or even took branches of the trees with them. Imperial Japan often planted cherry trees as a means of "claiming occupied territory as Japanese space". Hanami festivities have become popular outside of Japan as well. Hanami is widely celebrated in many English-speaking countries, such as United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Smaller celebrations take place in Taiwan, Brazil, Germany, India, Turkey, South Korea, the Philippines, China and other countries. Australia In the city named Cowra, in Australia, there is a War Cemetery holding the dead from the World War II. During a prison breakout near Cowra, 235 Australian and Japanese soldiers died and many were wounded. The Cemetery was tended to after WWII by Australian veterans. The Japanese government agreed to support the development of a Japanese Gardens a sign of thanks for the respectful treatment of their war dead. An annual cherry blossom festival is a major event in Cowra's tourism calendar and is held in the gardens during September. The festival celebrates the birth of spring. In 2011 the main festival date was held on Saturday, 24 September. It attracts performers from across Australia and around the world. United Kingdom Batsford Arboretum in Gloucestershire holds the national collection of Japanese village cherries. Keele University in Staffordshire has one of the UK's largest collections of flowering cherries, with more than 150 varieties. Cherry blossom festivals happen there usually in second half of April. Canada Vancouver, BC is famous for its thousands of cherry trees (estimated 50,000) lining many streets and in many parks.

Through the Sakura Project, the Japanese Consulate donated 34 cherry trees to High Park in 2001, and to various other locations. Niagara Falls also has many near the Falls itself. Peak bloom time is normally around the last week of April or the first week of May. United States of America Branch Brook Park in Newark, New Jersey is the oldest county park in the United States and is home to the nation's' largest collection of cherry blossom trees, with about 4,300. The famous cherry trees were the result of a 1927 gift from Caroline Bamberger Fuld, an American businesswoman and philanthropist. Japan gave 3,020 cherry blossom trees as a gift to the United States in 1912 to celebrate the nations' then-growing friendship. These trees were planted in Manhattan, New York and in the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C. More than 700,000 people visit Washington and New York each year to admire the blossoming cherry trees. Other US cities have annual Cherry Blossom Festivals, including, for example, the Festival in Macon, Georgia, which features over 300,000 cherry trees. They bloom around downtown, college campuses, and the neighborhoods of Macon in late March every year. Macon is known as the "Cherry Blossom Capital of the World“. The festival lasts for ten days and features events for people of all ages. Do you know? Cherry blossoms in Russia too.
