Every year nature performs this wonderful show of beauty and color in Japan, also known as cherry blossom.

National Geographic has invited its community members to submit pictures of the event the way they see it. Results are nothing short of breathtaking, with cherry blossoms coloring the whole landscape.

It is a big deal in Japan, with the meteorological agency even providing updates on the blossom season. It releases the latest news predicting advance of the cherry blossoms across Japan (the process even has its own name – “sakura zensen”). So if you want to join this amazing spectacle – head to northern Japan. Just don’t hesitate because as with many pretty things, this won’t last forever.
