Spring Window Display

The changing seasons in Japan are heralded by retail shops in the content of their window displays. The cherry blossom obviously plays a huge role in representing the coming of Spring, and color palettes often change to reflect the colors of these gorgeous blooms. Pastel shades of pink, off-white and green are traditionally used, and find their way into food items like these beautiful sweets made to eat with green tea (抹茶). Though charming window displays can be found all over Tokyo, you’ll obviously find higher concentrations of shops in high traffic areas like Shibuya, Shinjuku, Tokyo Station and Ginza.
