Japan’s Meteorological Agency has just released its first prediction of the year of dates when people are most likely to start getting hammered in parks across Japan.
“It really is a great excuse for people to get totally shit-faced,” said chief meteorologist Kouta Mistuya.
“We are forecasting the majority of people to be totally sloshed within the vicinity of a cherry blossom tree by around 3 p.m. on March 26 around the Kanto region.”
This year Japan’s Metorogical Agency is encouraging people to really get into the spirit of cherry blossom season and perhaps even “leave a few scraps of trash around the parks”.
“It would be fantastic if we were able to see at least a hint of evidence that some kind of party took place.”
