We Asked Readers to Describe Japan’s Cherry Blossom Season in 2 Words, And They Delivered

Beauty or Barfy? You be the judge.

By 1 min read

We know that our readers are handy with words based on the last time we asked them to simply describe Japan in 2 words. We also know that jaded as well as non-jaded gaijin (foreigners) grace this land.

So to get hyped for cherry blossom season, which is set to peak in Tokyo this weekend, we asked our readers to describe cherry blossom season in Japan in just two words—whether they love it or hate it.

We got nearly 200 mixed responses. It got us real excited for sakura season — not just because we have the 2019 Cherry Blossom Contest going on now!
