Record for earliest bloom of “sakura” cherry blossoms in Japan. This year the Japanese witnessed their glorious peak bloom on March 26th, the earliest date since data collection began in 1953.

The trees are very temperature sensitive, and scientists believe that they can provide data for climate change studies.

“We can say it’s most likely because of the impact of the global warming,” Shunji Anbe, an official at the Japan Meteorological Agency

Research shows that average temperature for March in Kyoto has increased to 10.6°C in 2020 from 8.6°C in 1953.
