"The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom" also known as "Tsunami Soshite Sakura Japan", is a film documenting survivors of the hardest hit areas in Japan after the recent tsunami and earth quake. Survivors try to rebuild during the Cherry Blossom season. Japan's Cherry Blossom Festival, called "Hanami" is an important Japanese custom held all over Japan during the spring. The origin of "Hanami" dates back to more than one thousand years ago when aristocrats enjoyed looking at the beautiful flowers and wrote poems. Today, people in Japan have fun viewing cherry blossoms, drinking and eating.
