Video of people enjoying the snowfall like shedding of the sakura (cherry blossom) petals

Here is a brief video of people enjoying the snowfall like fall of the sakura (cherry blossom) petals as the tree sheds it's flowers, a week after blooming. This is in the Chidoya district of Tokyo, near the Imperial Palace. Note also the carpet of petals on the ground. The sakura blooms shed after just a week, one petal at a time, so whenever there is a whiff of wind, several petals fall off the trees like snowfall. (Tokyo, Japan, Apr/ May 2019)
