Why do the Japanese jerk off over these things so much? They have them in China and a bunch of other places too, but no one cares.
>>
>>20376101
because they’re sensible enough to appreciate the beauty
>>
>>20376101
Because they're pink and gay.

Nobody gives a shit about China.
Nipponland is where the Cherry blossoms are.
>>
>>20382830
They have maple trees in Japan and what's more the leaves are shaped like Cannabis leaves dude weed lmao
>>
>>20376101
Because it's the one time of year the cities have some kind of color to them instead of the look of concrete.
>>
>>20385585
Why don't they just paint some houses pink?
>>
Honestly this. When I lived there coworkers would always ask me my hanami plans in the early spring, as if looking at some pointless flowers required weeks of planning. You see people huddled around trees taking picture after picture while you're walking to work in the morning. Bizarre.
>>
>>20392069
But you did go drink booze with them under the flowers, right?
>>
The fleetingness of the cherry blossom season reminds them of their collective desire to kill themselves. Joke's on them, cherry blossom's lifespan isn't even that short compared to some other flowers
>>
>>20376101
You guys really only care about japanese stuff if it gets your dick hard huh

Well, it depends. Do the flowers excite you then?
>>
>>20376101
Nobody cares about China's sakura because the normal streets just looks like a typical pajeet backalley, dirty, unkempt and generally not scenic. Cherry blossom is more than just flowers, the surrounding environment has to be serene too. That is why Japan is so closely associated with it. Even in Kore it just feels off.

>>20376101
Cherry blossoms are best when you're having a sick boss fight under them.

Hydrangeas

Newark has a nice park full of them that somehow is nice and serene
if you go at night you may be murdered by darkies from the neighboring public housing unit

I heard about that but I never bothered to go see it even though I live 20 minutes away.
>>
>>20376101
Big part of japanese culture is based on admiring nature, they divide the year in 72 "microseasons".
>>
somei yoshino is a huge meme tbqh
>>
>>20406291
>72 "microseasons".
That sounds like an even bigger meme than cherry blossoms.
>>
>>20376101
They're an excuse to drink and party, like Christmas

Because it would look gay.

A bit of colour has never made anyone gay.

See, colour. The priests who bang the mikos deffo aren't gay.
>>
>>20417822
The mikos are probably the priests daughters. Why would he bang them?
>>
>>20418346
Because they're sexy in their colourful outfits?

We have these everywhere in Vancouver from march through late april and honestly on sunny days with the snowcapped mountains in the distance and and the dense urban environment couples with like a majority of people in the city out and about being asian it kinda gives a japanese vibe.

It's my favourite time of year, I love going and taking photos of the cherry blossoms.
>>
>>20418346
Not banging your daughters as Japanese
>>
Are white cherry blossoms considered worth viewing too?
>>
>>20385585
The cities are absolutely filled with color though, I mean yeah if you look at them from a bird' eye view it's obviously all high rise and skycrapers but when you're walking around at eye level there's loads of old neon signs and new LED ones and giant screens and everything, and then you've got all the different festivals that bring out even more color.
>>
So wait, you mean China doesn't have an appreciation for aesthetic beauty?
>>
>>20401630
>>20376101

100% this. Even in Canada or whatever everywhere is covered in dog shit if not heroin needles and people spit everywhere.

One of their biggest problems is that they shoved about 200 years worth of natural industrial growth into about 70 years via Mao's policies. Millions of people starved, dissidents were wiped out, Tibet had the shit colonized out of them, and to this day you still have people living in the countryside shitting in holes and eating asbestos while in big cities you have billionaires living lives that are as good or better than any other wealthy people in first world countries.

Also while the technology and industry mostly caught up, the culture hasn't. People from mainland China still like piss and shit in the streets because why not. Even people from Hong Kong find them abhorring there was a big scandal when mainland tourists had their kid pee in the middle of the street and it made the headline of newspapers it was hilarious

This is just a repost from /pol. You even used the same words and picture. Even the replies are the same. WTF?

It's really not. Do post an archive link if you believe that, though.
