Sakura cut flowers are popular for indoor decoration
As the new coronavirus continues to push people to stop going out of hurry, more and more customers are looking for cut cherry blossoms that can be enjoyed indoors at flower shops in Harajuku, Tokyo.
In the florist that has been in Harajuku for more than 50 years, graduation ceremonies and entrance ceremonies have been canceled one after another, which means that sales have fallen by about 30% in the average year.
On the other hand, more and more customers are looking for cut flowers of Yoshino cherry tree and Keio cherry blossoms that can be enjoyed indoors last week, when a request was made to refrain from going out.
There is almost no demand for cherry blossoms during the spring cherry blossom season, but customers who buy cherry blossoms come every day, such as when they sell out.
According to Yuko Ino of Jingu Garden, “A lot of people say that they want to enjoy spring because they can stay in a branch house where they can't go outside. I hope healing can be delivered. "
Sakura cut flowers can be enjoyed for about a week if soaked in water at home and sold until mid-April.
