We’ve had a few signs that winter is on its way out, but nothing says, “Spring is in the air!” like the arrival of cherry blossoms, also known as sakura in Japan. Never mind that this occurs every year—the entire world still gets excited about them. In fact, the thousand-year tradition of Sakura Matsuri (Cherry Blossom Festival) is one of the most photographed events of the season across the globe, wherever these trees grow and ripen. If you love these fabulous foliages of pink as much as we do, you’ll go crazy for these 25 photos of cherry blossoms around the world—from Washington D.C., USA to Stockholm, Sweden. And just in case you’re missing the winter, these photos will get you caught up in cherry blossom season fever soon. Scroll down, and get inspired!
