Contains 25 Kindle pages, with 6 illustrations.excerpt -Everywhere in Japan the gala season of the year is when the cherry blooms. Everything leads up to, waits upon, and dates from the time of the cherry blossom far more than from the time of the chrysanthemums, and in that month the whole empire is wreathed in rose color from Kiusiu to the farthest north. Everyone goes to see the cherry blossoms as a matter of course. No one foregoes a sight of the charming sakura of his neighborhood, and the very poorest will trudge to some famous place to see some historic tree when they cannot pay the low rates at which all railroads run the many special cherry blossom excursion trains. Prince Ito took as much pride in the avenue of cherry trees and the perfect specimens of rare trees blooming among the evergreens of his Oiso villa, down on the brocade coast, as in the realization of his greatest dreams of empire. Admiral Togo has planted cherry trees to commemorate his visits here and there, as has General Nogi, and both have written poems to knighthoods flower.
