Introduction
Every year, Seoul National Cemetery hosts an event when the weeping cherry blossoms within the cemetery are in full bloom. The weeping cherry blossoms symbolize patriotism and have a particularly pink appearance. The weeping cherry blossoms offer a fascinating sight with their branches hanging down, resembling a waterfall of flowers. The hanging branches may also seem like as if the trees are bowing down to pay respect to the brave soldiers and martyrs who fought for the country. The Seoul National Cemetery Event is held every April, offering various sightseeing opportunities and activities.
