Slices of Japanese business, politics and life
Nothing can get in the way of a cherry blossom party in Japan, not even North Korea’s test-launch of a rocket.
A couple weeks ago I blogged about Japan’s cherry blossom season and how the sakura-crazy nation was preparing to pop open the sake and party.
The blossoms were in full bloom in Tokyo about a week ago – right around the time North Korea planned a rocket launch over Japan.
The launch dominated the headlines and kept people on edge, but it did not get between people and their party plans, including those of Japan’s military.
