It's around late March or early April that our feeds get peppered with posts of cherry blossoms from Japan. That's because the famous sakura flowers bloom in spring time, just around those months. But there's a small town outside of Tokyo called Kawazu where spring comes early and the flowers bloom around February!

The town has 8,000 cherry blossoms trees.
