What was the origin of the Sakura-cherry tree appreciation festival in Japan ?

It is said that the origin of “Hanami”, the Sakura-cherry tree appreciation festival, started in the Nara Period when ornamental plum trees from China were introduced into Japan for the nobility. Then, from the Heian period, the object of admiration changed from the plum tree to the cherry tree. The Shogun (Lord) Tokugawa Yoshimune planted cherry trees all over what was then called Edo (Tokyo today). His purpose in encouraging cherry blossoms was to eliminate thefrustration of ordinary people in their everyday lives by lifting individuals souls with their beauty, and this benefit continues in today’s modern world.

Japanese people today often have an emotional attachment to the cherry blossom because it reminds them of the time of school graduation (normally in March) when the cherry tree is in bloom.
