Japanese love cherry blossoms

Cherry blossoms are in their full bloom here and there around my area.
As the spring is moving up to the Japanese archipelago from the south to the north, we just can't miss the cerry blossoms in full bloom at the nearby parks, the famous sightspots for their cherry blossoms.
Why people are so keen to take a look at cherry blossoms at this season?
The cherry blossoms burnst into bloom all at once and fall onto the ground within a few days.
Many Japanese people take it that the cherry blossoms' fragile life is something similar to ours. Life is short but so endearing.
I visited the Nagoya Castle where you can see thousands of trees with thier cherry blossoms at the peak. It was crowded with people.
