This beautifully simple Japanese melody 'Cherry Blossoms' will put a spring in your step

As spring approaches, we reckon this is a perfect Japanese melody to make you feel good, thanks to More Music Breakfast and Yakult.

Every morning in More Music Breakfast with Yakult, we like to make you feel good. It might come with the feeling of hearing a great melody, or perhaps something more scientific, like a drink of Yakult, formulated by Japanese scientists.

Sakura Sakura, translating as 'Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms', is a traditional Japanese folk song depicting spring, the season of those iconic cherry blossoms throughout the country. 

It's a beautiful melody which evokes those delicate blooms of spring - we think it's the perfect way to begin the day with a little bit of Japan, thanks to Yakult.
