You don’t have to travel all the way to Japan to see cherry blossom. Right now, you can go to the Amsterdams Forest to see cherry blossom blooming. In the year 2000 the Japanese Women’s Club donated 400 cherry trees to the city of Amstelveen (the Japanese are the biggest foreign community in Amstelveen). For the Japanese, Sakura is a symbol of spring. Go visit, it is really worth it! Here you can find the exact location.
