Cherry Blossoms come earlier this year in Tokyo

Japan's prettiest national pastime of hanami, or cherry blossom viewing, has got off to its earliest start ever. The Meteorological Agency oof Japan announced the beginning of cherry blossom season over the weekend.

The declaration came after the agency's designated index tree at Tokyo's Yasukuni Shrine showed the first flowers in bloom on Saturday.
