'Cherry Trees' - Japanology Plus (NHK World Program), Time-sensitive - VOD available only until 31-MAR-18 - JST

Quoting from the introduction to the program on the NHK World TV VOD site:

Springtime in Japan means cherry trees in brief, yet glorious bloom, before their petals fall like confetti on the breeze. This yearly occurrence strikes a deep chord in the Japanese soul.

Our expert guest this time is Toemon Sano, whom host Peter Barakan remembers as "delightfully outspoken and funny", and whose family owns and maintains a forest with over 150 varieties of cherry tree.

In Plus One, learn how to hold your own blossom-viewing picnic.
