好奇的乔治 Curious George 英文剧本 -- ::31 来源: [Upside Down by Jack Johnson playing] Who's to say What's impossible Well, they got This world keeps spinning And with each new day I can feel a change in everything And as the surface breaks, reflections fade But in some ways, they remain the same And as my mind begins to sp its wings There's no stopping curiosity I want to turn the whole thing upside down I'll find the things they say just can't be found I'll share this love I find with everyone We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs I don't want this feeling to go away [Growling] Who's to say I can't do everything Well, I can try And as I roll along I begin to find Things aren't always just what they seem I want to turn the whole thing upside down I'll find the things they say just can't be found I'll share this love I find with everyone We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs This world keeps spinning And there's no time to waste Well, it all keeps spinning, spinning round and round And upside down Who's to say what's impossible and can't be found I don't want this feeling to go away Please don't go away Please don't go away Please don't go away Is this how it's supposed to be Is this how it's supposed to be TED: Now, as I was saying, life was a constant struggle survival. Australopithecus had no time to enjoy himself... because around every corner was danger. BOY 1: Way to go. BOY : Oh, good one. It wasn't until an amazing discovery... that man was able to take time and enjoy life. And why was that? What made Ogg and Grogg's life so much better? A game? No. The Internet? No. A rocket sled? A mountain of chocolate. Star stickers? No. Look. No, no, that wasn't a real question. Peanut butter? That's right. Fire. [Ted exclaiming] Look at that. Impressive, huh? Miss Dunlop, why do we have to come to this boring museum every single week? It's not boring. It's very interesting. This led to hot dinners. Eventually became the microwave. BOY: Three, two, one. Oh! Oh, no. Hot. Fire's hot. Yes. Where was I? Hey, is that a real spear? BOY: Can we play with it? Kids, a museum is a place where we observe. We don't play. This stinks. What else can we do? Yeah, this is boring. MGIE: Children, be polite. Lunchtime! Yeah, lunch. TED: Lunchtime? It's only 9:00 a.m. Buddy system. Stay with your buddies. Oh, well, each kid has a buddy so they can all keep track of each other. Everyone needs a partner, right? Oh, yeah. I'm not following. Well... Lungfish! Excuse me? Next Thursday, I'm going to talk to your class about the lungfish... the closest living relative of the tetrapods. It's pretty great. I look ward to hearing it. You know, I look ward to all your Thursday lectures. I wish today was Thursday. I mean, I know that it's Thursday. Don't worry. I just meant, when it's not, I wish it was. It's not a big deal. Here. I should go catch up to my lungfish. I mean, class. [Whispering] Way to go, Maggie. Way to go. I'll see you next week, Miss Dunlop. Oh, how embarrassing. Ted? Mr. Bloomsberry. Walk with me, Ted. I'm afraid that Ogg and Grogg, all of our friends here... they're just not bringing in the crowds like they used to. What do you mean? It breaks my heart, but I have to sell the museum. We're broke. Broke? Mr. Bloomsberry, the museum can't close! I have no choice, Ted. Museum attendance is down. No one's buying anything from the gift shop. Even the glow-in-the-dark star stickers? Even the glow-in-the-dark star stickers. Man, I love those. I especially love the Milky Way... Wait! What will happen to the museum? Well, I'm glad you asked. Junior? Lt'll be torn down and a parking lot put in its place... with high hourly rates and no daily maximums. Ka-ching! The world doesn't need another parking lot. The world needs a place where kids' brains can grow. Exactly. That's why I'm thinking... they can grow trying to count all the spaces in the new parking lot. Come on. How fun is that? He's not serious, is he? Well... It's time, Father. We're not going to get a better offer. I know. I know. Wait. What if we did something? What if we got an amazing new exhibit? You know, Ted, you need to worry about finding an amazing new job. Well, hold on, Junior. But I was just trying... Oh, great. Ted, if you have an idea, now is the time to speak up. What exhibit? Yes, what exhibit? TED: It's the... Yes? The famous and... Yes. And rare, of course... Yes. Yes. The incredible... Come on. Spit it out. Don't be shy, Ted. Come on. What about the Lost Shrine of Zagawa? Oh, my goodness. I'm sorry. "The lost..." You lost me at, "the lost." It's an ancient idol. Twenty tons of granite... carved by 1,000 craftsmen over a 0 years. I had all the charts y. I was all set to go to Africa when something happened. Slips my mind. Hello, how about the birth of your only son? That would be me. Yes, then I began another adventure, raising Junior. Well, now that that's done, you can finally finish what you've started... which is bringing home... Yeah! The Lost Shrine of Zagawa. You'll put this museum on the map. I'll need a team of men. Oh, at least . It's a four-day hike into the jungle. You go, girl. I mean, sir. We'll be cutting through heavy brush hours a day. Look out. Here comes the Bloomsberry Express! Yes! Yes! Next stop archeological fame and tune! I'm going to discover the Lost Shrine of Zagawa! A little help here. Hey, watch it! I got something. I am really, really old. Can I have the Bloomsberry Express pull into the reality station... and sign here, initial here. Nope, not there. Wait! I guess I could go. Did I just say that? I can't do that. I don't even ride the bus. Maybe they didn't hear me. I'm sorry, sir. You were saying? Excellent idea, Ted. He did hear me. Him? You've got to be kidding me. Ted is not an explorer. He raises a good point. Nonsense. With my maps and my journals, a six-year-old could find the shrine. Thank you, I think. Come on. Let's get you y your big adventure. Now, Ted, the journal won't take you right to the idol. It won't? No, you have to use your instincts. About that, sir, I don't have any. Don't be silly. It'll be fun. Sorry, Ted. But that's as close as you're ever going to get... to the precious Lost Shrine of Zaga-wah-wah-wah... Why does my father like you best? It's not fair. I've got the ponytail. Okay, Ted, the trick is to look like you know what you're doing. Now, where's the door? Yellow? Six dozen yellow suits? Tony, what, are you goofy? We can't sell these things. Hey, me goofy? get about it. The big guy says move them, we move them. Oh, yeah, sure, but what kind of meatball would buy these? [Bell tinkling] Excuse me? I'm here to be professionally outfitted a jungle expedition. [Whispering] Showtime. [Ln an Australian accent] Good day, mate. You've stepped into the right place. Isn't that right, Nigel? I'll say it is, Steve-O. Finally, a real adventurer to suit up. So do you like the color yellow? Yellow? Yeah, what, are you goofy? Yellow's the new khaki. Mate. Really? Well, okay. You've got to be kidding. Look at that get-up. Hello, who are you, the six-foot banana? "The new khaki." Thank you! Thank you very much! I look like an idiot. TED: Edu. Yes, sir? Don't worry the other men, but we're hopelessly lost. Sir, your book is upside down. Oh. Oh, good catch. Carry on. Thank you, sir. MAN 1: Wow. What is it? MAN : That's interesting. Look at this. Beautiful. Look at the color. Edu, do you see this? Yes, it's... Exciting! We are so close. Edu. Mr. Ted. It says here "Zagawa" means enlightenment. I know, sir. I live here. Oh, right. Did you know the statue we're looking is a giant monkey? Yes, sir. I live here. Right again. Oh, a rhino. Sir? Stand aside, men. Mr. Ted. This is a tranquilizer gun. I'm just going to put him to sleep. That's not a rhino. That's a... [Edu exclaiming] Nice shot, Mr. Ted. [Snoring] Oops! Okay, let's break lunch... the next four to six hours... or longer, depending on how much he weighs. I should probably make a sandwich Edu. He'll have quite an appetite and a headache when he wakes up. This is really good. [Chattering] Hey! Oh, a monkey. Hey, there, little guy. Can I have my hat, please? I kind of need my hat. Sun's hot, and I freckle. Not the good kind either. I blotch. So please, my hat. That's the one, all right. [Chattering happily] Hello. Anybody in there? Peekaboo. Peekaboo. Peekaboo. Aboo. Aboo. Well, look at that. A monkey who likes to play peek-a-boo. Hey, this was fun, my little friend, but, sorry, I've got to go. I wonder if Edu's up yet. Hey! Come back here. You can run, but you can't hide. I'll catch up. I am unstoppable. That's right. I can run all night. All day and all night. There's nothing that can stop... Cramp! Cramp. Cramp can stop me. Why the cramp? Extra-bad cramp, too. What? What... [Chattering happily] Okay, I have an idea. We'll trade. Sandwich the hat. On three. One, two, three! [Grunting] Okay. We're not really making any progress here. Okay. Oh, yeah. [Giggling] 191, 19, 193, 19. Not now, monkey. 196, 197, one-ninety-monkey. 199, 0. Okay, "Look two mufuti bushes, and you will find X." There, sir. Mufutis. Good eye, Edu. Here, hold this. There it is. It's awesome. It's spectacular. It's... Gone? What? This can't be it. EDU: Did you find it, sir? It's supposed to be huge. But that isn't huge, okay? That's the opposite of huge. I need the giant monkey. Who knew it was actual size? Wait. This looks like ancient Swatabi. "Turn your eye to the light. "Go from blindness to sight." That's a clue. "Turn your eye to the light." All right, I'm looking directly into the sun. It's very bright. It's starting to sting. Not going to lie to you. Okay, now... Now, it's burning, and it's continuing... Oh, I singed my cornea. Oh, I'm blind. [Exclaiming] Okay, water, HO, just a little liquid refreshment, please. Oh, there it is. Oh, sweet relief. Thank you, Edu. Edu, Edu, Edu. All right, men, let's pick it up. I'll be over here until my vision returns. I traveled ,000 miles a paper weight? What am I going to tell Mr. Bloomsberry? [Cell phone ringing] Bloomsberry? Wow. Strong signal. Hello? Ted, it's me. Have you found it yet? Yeah, I'm looking at it right now. Oh, that's great. Is it gigantic? Well, there is a size issue, sir. I'll send you a photo so you can see yourself. I can't wait. Do you see it, sir? I do. Oh, sir. Are you crying? It's supposed to be 0 feet tall. I'll explain it all when I get back. No need to. I can see it right here. [Dial tone buzzing] I can't believe it. Do you see that, Junior? It's even bigger than I ever imagined! Well, that's impossible. I... I can't believe he... [Sarcastically] Hurray. We're saved. EDU: Mr. Ted, time to go. You know what? Keep the hat. Hey, don't look so sad. It's the new khaki. It's true. Bye. [Car engine starting] [Men chattering] TED: Edu, I can't find the seat belt. Will that be a problem? Not me. Edu, it's okay to use the break. Oh, relax. I want to be where the talk of the town Is about last night when the sun went down Yeah, and the trees all dance And the warm wind blows in the same old sound And the trouble I find is that the trouble finds me I'm beginning to find it begins with a dream And a feeling I get when I look and I see That this world is a puzzle Find all of the pieces And put it all together Then I'll rearrange it I'll follow it ever And maybe Maybe now the water below gives a gift to the sky And the clouds give back every time they cry Make the grass grow green beneath my toes And if the sun comes out Gonna paint a picture all about The colors I've been dreaming of TED: Mr. Bloomsberry... I would just like to say in my defense that... Sir, when we set out... on certain adventures in life... sometimes... Sometimes, they don't quite go as planned. I'm extra sorry. Oh, boy. Maybe I could just work on this ship... be a deckhand or a chef. I'm so glad I upgraded. Oh, the knee! There's the ehead! Knee-ehead combo. [Groaning] [Chattering happily] No, no, no, not the honey-roasted goodness. [Thudding] And there's the head again. [Ship horn blowing] Hey, it's a monkey with a hat! I'll just go ahead and put that under "Miscellaneous." [People Watching by Jack Johnson playing] Well, I'm just people watching The other people watching me CABBY 1: Where you going, Yellow?

Okay, that's kind of fun. REPORTER: How much longer is this going to take? Let's all be patient, please. Ted will be more than happy to answer all your questions regarding the giant idol. Yes, but where is he? Oh, boy. I just spoke to Ted. He's on his way. Run, monkey. Run. Quick, in here. What am I going to do? This is beyond bad. Hey, monkey. Quiet. Monkey. I said, quiet! Well, we gave it a shot, didn't we? I mean, huge monkey statues, they come and go... but parking lots are ever. TED: Excuse me. Would you please... Oh, look who's back. Would you stop that? I have to concentrate. And he's wearing a yellow suit. What, is he officially the golden child now? Monkey, put that down. No. Oh, I've got problems. Oh, do I have problems. Glorious day, Ted has problems. What am I going to do? What can I do? There's no way around it. I have to tell Mr. Bloomsberry the truth. The horrible... Horrible? ...awful... Awful? ...devastatingly crushing truth. Devastatingly crushing? His enormous idol looks like it came out of a cereal box. Wow, that must be a huge box of cereal, or... It's only three inches tall. Yes! This is great. What a great day parking lots. Oh, my body. Hey, a dollar. Yeah, it spins. Fun, huh? [Knocking at door] CLOVIS: Ted? Hello? Oh, there you are? What's with that? Clovis, I can explain. I should hope so because that is a lot of yellow one man. You see, it's... I thought you were color blind. I can see that. Oh, bee I get, here's a bill my services. $,000? What's this ? The exhibition stage the Lost Shrine of Zagawa. Mr. Bloomsberry? Watch this. MAN: Behold the Eighth Wonder of the World! [Mr. Bloomsberry laughing] Clovis whipped it up. Doesn't it take your breath away? More than you know. Okay, let's get down to business. Where's the shrine? What's that? MAN: Behold the Eighth Wonder of the World! But, Ted, that can't be the idol. I don't understand. We saw the picture. The statue is huge. I'm sorry, sir, but it is. I've been trying to tell you, this is this. Oh, Ted, what are we going to do? Okay, here he is, everybody. Right this way. The man of the hour. Our hero. No pushing. We'll all get a chance. Hey, Ted, they can't wait you to tell them... about the massively gigantic, huge, enormous idol. Don't be shy. Right up there. Come on. Now's not the time butterflies, Ted. Speak right into the mike. You're good? You checked that that's working, right? Louder. Any questions? Over here. Can you tell how old it is? JUNIOR: Sounded like "old," but what she said was "big." How big is it? TED: You know, I'm not sure about that. Could you tell us, was it difficult finding a boat big enough to bring the idol back? No. No, didn't have a problem on the boat thing. It... Yeah, it fit nicely. MAN: Excuse me. What was your first reaction when you saw the idol? I was emotional. Teared up pretty much instantly. Guy, guys, guys, let's focus here. We're here about the idol. So, Ted, where is the idol now? Yes, yes, yes, where is the idol? It's... It's close. It's... It's very close. JUNIOR: What else we got? Come on, guys. Fire away. Keep them coming. Excuse me. Rumor has it the idol has magical powers. Is that true? Well, that all depends. Yeah, good one. Now, ask him where it is. Was it difficult to find? WOMAN: Is it made of solid gold? And how big is the idol? Are you going to write a book? What about a movie deal? Oh, no, that's not a good idea. It's not? Why? Not the Apatosaurus merly known as the brontosaurus. I'm sorry. No, don't! This is very common when you come back from the jungle. Bad idea! Monkey! Monkey, no! JUNIOR: Can we please get back to questions... regarding when we will actually see the idol? No, no, no! Monkey! No, no, no! You can't leave. Ted! Please, no! Ted, bee you leave, please... No! Ted, where is the idol? Okay, careful. Careful, that's the linch pin to the whole left leg. Oh, no! Wow, I didn't see that coming. Oh, Ted, we're doomed. What's a monkey doing here? I guess we should just take a picture. Quick, get a picture. Well, seriously, Ted, can't say you didn't try. I mean, you did bring back a monkey, just not one anyone cared about. Okay, bye-bye. Hold on! You're locking me out? Cabs are right behind you. Perfect. Oh, no. No, no, no. No. No, you don't. No. This is not going to work. Here it is, "Animal Control." This better work. WOMAN: Hello, Animal Control. How can I help you? Yes, could you send someone over to the Bloomsberry Museum right away? We have a very dangerous monkey. Describe dangerous, sir. Oh, he's frothing at the mouth. He's got teeth like Ginsu knives and crazy eyes. He's a killer. Listen to this. [Lmitating a monkey] Put that child down! Oh, the horror! I can't watch! Sir, we just closed, but I can leave a message. What am I supposed to do with this monkey? I'm sure I don't know. Thank you calling the Animal Control hotline. [Dial tone buzzing] Hello? You, down. Okay, listen. I'm only watching you... until tomorrow, when Animal... Don't do that. Okay, maybe you're right. It's late. It's been a long day. I'm all out of ideas. What do you got? Oh, this is great. This is a great idea. I'm so comtable here. What are we lying on here? Is this goose down? It's so comfy. No, this is a concrete park bench. That's what it is. Did I mention that it's a cold concrete bench? Very cold. [Thunder clapping] Hey, shake all you want, monkey. There's no bananas in there. But if you find a 0 foot idol, let me know. Eighth wonder of the world. Right. What a nightmare. Oh, no. No, no, no, don't look so satisfied with yourself. The whole reason we're sleeping out here is because of you. Yeah, I could be in my nice, warm bed right now... showered, teeth brushed... instead of sleeping out in the cold with a monkey... under the stars. Wow. Those glow-in-the-dark star stickers have nothing on this. That? That's a firefly. Good grab. Nice. Yep, they're still in there. Bright, huh? They're bioluminescent. Did you know that fireflies glow to remind us that they taste bitter. It's a defense mechanism. [Fireflies buzzing] Yeah. See? I told you. Oh, no. No, no, no. No, thanks. I'm good. Yep, you know, there's no way I'm going to eat that bug. So quit trying... Oh, wow. Yeah, that tastes bad, definitely bitter. Okay. Oh, listen to this. I've got a good one you. What's the difference between Neanderthal man and Cro-Magnon man? Linguistic competence and polychromatic cave paintings. Get it? Hello? You're missing the punch line. You see, it's the difference between the two... It's always a winner. [Snoring] I need some fresh museum- related material. People depend on me those jokes. [Ted yawning] [Children chattering] No, no, those are dinosaur bones. You can't park there. There's no parking here. That's my office! Oh, just a bad dream. Oh, boy. Monkey? Monkey? Where are you? BOY 1: A monkey flew! Oh, no. Run! Run! BOY : A monkey! A monkey! Wait. It's a zoo. A zoo is full of monkeys. Who's to say it's mine? BOY 3: The monkey is chasing me! That's mine. [Children screaming] BOY : Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Look at that! Oh, that's cold. Oh, it's so much colder than you think. I suggest never doing that. Ever. Don't ever swim with penguins. Swim with dolphins. Freezing! It's going to be okay. Okay, your turn. There you are. Oh, Ted. Hi. Miss Maggie. Hi. What happened to you? Oh, it didn't rain here? Nope, not here. Wow, now, that's crazy. Freak cloudburst down the street. BOY: Yeah, right. Hey, where you going? The monkey knows that guy? Please tell me you paid those. He thinks he's a banana. So how long have you had a monkey? I don't. I mean, I do. Oh, he's so cute. I really don't. I... Long story. Mr. Ted, what's your monkey's name? Yeah, what's his name? He doesn't have a name.

Remember, the sale ends Thursday. So after they took him away, I've been wandering the streets... and you saw me hugging a man in a monkey outfit. That pretty much catches you up.

Run that by me one more time. George is gone, and I'm afraid it's your fault he's gone. So the question is, what are you going to do about it? You're right. It is my fault. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a date with a monkey. You know that I don't have a date with a monkey. It was just my way of saying that I'm going after George. Ted. Right. Bye. [Ship horn blowing] Oh, no! I'm too late. Or am I? Luckily, movies have taught me exactly what to do in this situation. Kids, don't try this at home. Here we go. What am I doing? This isn't a movie. It's real! This is odd. You guys are a little dressed up a cargo ship to Africa, don't you think? [Ship horn blowing] Oops. Excuse me. I'm coming you! George! George! [Muffled] George. George.

You're all right. Oh, I'm so sorry. I don't know how I let them take you away. I mean, I do. This was so important to me, but somehow it just doesn't matter anymore. What matters is you and me, buddy, our buddyship. Now we can do all the monkey things we've always wanted to do. I'll get an organ and grind, and you can dance money. Or I can dance money. Who knows? We'll figure it out. We can take turns. George, do you mind? I'm expressing some feelings here. It's kind of hard, okay? Now, where was I? Right, who's going to dance. Oh, no, no. Adventure! You brought adventure to my life. And now, you know, that's all that matters. Wait. Where's that coming from? It's a pictogram. George, it's the map! We had it all along. Of course. "Turn your eye to the light. Go from blindness to sight." I was supposed to hold the statue up to the sun. Pack your things, George. We're off to Africa on the very next ship. [Ship horn blowing] Wait a minute. We're aly on a ship to Africa. Man, what a time saver. Okay, Edu. I got it. That's it! You did it, George! Give me five! That's close enough. Well done, Mr. Ted. This way, men! Follow me. Right away. The guy in yellow. Let's go. Here I am. Please, valet at your service. We've been waiting. Sorry. The nearest parking lot is five blocks away. I know.

WOMAN: Way to go, Mr. Ted! As I stand in front of the Lost Idol of Zagawa... I just have one important thing to say. Anyone can memorize facts and figures.

樱花的英文介绍 -- ::5 来源: 樱花的英文介绍经过阵阵春雨的洗礼,迎来了阳光明媚的四月,气温逐渐回升,百花盛开此时,正是樱花盛放的时节,驴友们在飘舞的妩媚樱花下,把酒而坐,三五个知己,一坛好酒,真是人生一大盛事!樱花土生土长与一些东亚国家,如韩国,日本,中国日本的樱花品种就多达0多种樱花可以用cherry blossom或者Oriental cherry这个词,也可以用sakurasakura取自日本樱花的音译,听起来更加浪漫和诗意Flower viewing 赏樱花"Hanami" is the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the beauty of flowers, "flower" in this case almost always meaning cherry blossoms or ume blossoms. From the end of March to early May, sakura bloom all over Japan. The blossom ecast ( sakurazensen, literally cherry blossom front) is announced each year by the weather bureau, and is watched carefully by those planning hanami as the blossoms only last a week or two. In modern-day Japan, hanami mostly consists of having an outdoor party beneath the sakura during daytime or at night. Hanami at night is called yozakura (literally night sakura). In many places such as Ueno Park temporary paper lanterns are hung the purpose of yozakura.A more ancient m of hanami also exists in Japan, which is enjoying the plum blossoms instead. This kind of hanami is popular among older people, because they are more calm than the sakura parties, which usually involve younger people and can sometimes be very crowded and noisy.History樱花的历史The practice of hanami is many centuries old. The custom is said to have started during the Nara Period (7–79) when it was ume blossoms that people admired in the beginning. But by the Heian Period (79–85), sakura came to attract more attention and hanami was synonymous with sakura. From then on, in tanka and haiku, "flowers" meant "sakura."Hanami was first used as a term analogous to cherry blossom viewing in the Heian era novel Tale of Genji. Whilst a wisteria viewing party was also described, from this point on the terms "hanami" and "flower party" were only used to describe cherry blossom viewing.Sakura originally was used to divine that year's harvest as well as announce the rice-planting season. People believed in kami inside the trees and made offerings. Afterwards, they partook of the offering with sake.Emperor Saga of the Heian Period adopted this practice, and held flower-viewing parties with sake and feasts underneath the blossoming boughs of sakura trees in the Imperial Court in Kyoto. Poems would be written praising the delicate flowers, which were seen as a metaphor life itself, luminous and beautiful yet fleeting and ephemeral. This was said to be the origin of hanami in Japan.The custom was originally limited to the elite of the Imperial Court, but soon sp to samurai society and, by the Edo period, to the common people as well. Tokugawa Yoshimune planted areas of cherry blossom trees to encourage this. Under the sakura trees, people had lunch and drank sake in cheerful feasts.Today, the Japanese people continue the tradition of hanami, gathering in great numbers wherever the flowering trees are found. Thousands of people fill the parks to hold feasts under the flowering trees, and sometimes these parties go on until late at night. In more than half of Japan, the cherry blossoming period coincides with the beginning of the school and fiscal years, and so welcoming parties are often opened with hanami. The Japanese people continue the tradition of hanami by taking part in the processional walks through the parks. This is a m of retreat contemplating and renewing their spirits.The teasing proverb dumplings rather than flowers hints at the real priorities most cherry blossom viewers, meaning that people are more interested in the food and drinks accompanying a hanami party than actually viewing the flowers themselves. (A punning variation, Boys Over Flowers is the title of a manga and anime series.)Dead bodies are buried under the cherry trees! is a popular saying about hanami, after the opening sentence of the 195 short story "Under the Cherry Trees" by Motojirō Kajii. Emperor Saga (786-8) of the Heian Period adopted this custom, and celebrated parties to view the flowers with sake and feasts under the blossoming branches of sakura trees in the Imperial Court in Kyoto. This was said to be the origin of hanami in Japan. Poems were written praising the delicate flowers, which were seen as a metaphor life itself; beautiful, but lasting a very short time. This "temporary" view of life is very popular in Japanese culture and is usually considered as an admirable m of existence; example, in the samurai's principle of life ending when it's still beautiful and strong, instead of slowly getting old and weak. The Heian era poets used to write poems about how much easier things would be in spring without the sakura blossoms, because their existence reminded us that life is very short: If there were no cherry blossoms in this world How much more tranquil our hearts would be in spring.’’Ariwara no Narihira (85 - 880)Hanami was used as a term that meant "cherry blossom viewing" the first time in the Heian era novel Tale of Genji ("Under the Cherry Blossoms"). From then on, in tanka and in haiku poetry, "flowers" meant "sakura", and the terms "hanami" and "flower party" were only used to mean sakura blossom viewing. At the beginning, the custom was followed only by the Imperial Court, but the samurai nobility also began celebrating it during the Azuchi-Momoyama Period (68–00). In those years, Toyotomi Hideyoshi gave great hanami parties in Yoshino and Daigo, and the festivity became very popular through all the Japanese society. Shortly after that, farmers began their own custom of climbing nearby mountains in the springtime and having lunch under the blooming cherry trees. This practice, called then as the "spring mountain trip", combined itself with that of the nobles' to m the urban culture of hanami. By the Edo Period (00–1867), all the common people took part in the celebrations, in part because Tokugawa Yoshimune(徳川 吉宗, November 7, 8 - July , 51, the eighth shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan, ruling from until his abdication in 5.) planted areas of cherry blossom trees to encourage this. Under the sakura trees, people had lunch and drank sake in cheerful feasts. The blossom ecast is announced each year by the Japan Meteorological Agency, and is watched with attention by those who plan to celebrate hanami because the blossoms last very little time, usually no more than two weeks. The first cherry blossoms happen in the subtropical southern islands of Okinawa, while on the northern island of Hokkaido, they bloom much later. In most large cities like Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, the cherry blossom season normally takes place around the end of March and the beginning of April. The television and newspapers closely follow this "cherry blossom front", as it slowly moves from South to North. The hanami celebrations usually involve eating and drinking, and playing and listening music. Some special dishes are prepared and eaten at the occasion, like dango and bento, and it's common sake to be drunk as part of the festivity. "Dead bodies are buried under the cherry trees!" (Sakura no ki no shita ni wa shitai ga umatte iru!) is a popular saying about hanami, after the first line of the 195 short story "Under the Cherry Trees" by Motojirō Kajii.Symbolism 樱花的象征 In Japan cherry blossoms also symbolize clouds due to their nature of blooming en masse, besides being an enduring metaphor the ephemeral nature of life, an aspect of Japanese cultural tradition that is often associated with Buddhistic influence, and which is embodied in the concept of mono no aware. The association of the cherry blossom with mono no aware dates back to 18th-century scholar Motoori Norinaga. The transience of the blossoms, the extreme beauty and quick death, has often been associated with mortality; this reason, cherry blossoms are richly symbolic, and have been utilized often in Japanese art, manga, anime, and film, as well as at musical permances ambient effect. There is at least one popular folk song, originally meant the shakuhachi (bamboo flute), titled "Sakura", and several pop songs. The flower is also represented on all manner of consumer goods in Japan, including kimono, stationery, and dishware.Cherry blossom is an omen of good tune and is also an emblem of love, affection and represents spring. Cherry blossoms are an enduring metaphor the fleeting nature of life, and as such are frequently depicted in art.During World War II, the cherry blossom was used to motivate the Japanese people, to stoke nationalism and militarism among the populace. Japanese pilots would paint them on the sides of their planes bee embarking on a suicide mission, or even take branches of the trees with them on their missions. A cherry blossom painted on the side of the bomber symbolized the intensity and ephemerality of life; in this way, the aesthetic association was altered such that falling cherry petals came to represent the sacrifice of youth in suicide missions to honor the emperor. The government even encouraged the people to believe that the souls of downed warriors were reincarnated in the blossoms.In its colonial enterprises, imperial Japan often planted cherry trees as a means of "claiming occupied territory as Japanese space". 樱花的英文
