My hometown! ♥ Normal sightseeing is awesome too.

In 1989 many Japanese donated money for ~10.000 Sakura Cherry trees because they were happy about the German Reunification. The trees were planted around Berlin and Brandenburg. 1000 were planted at the boarder strip between Berlin-Lichterfelde and Teltow. In April they have Hanamis there.

The roof of the Sony Center in Berlin represents Mt. Fuji or Fujisan. - Das Sony Center soll eines der Wahrzeichen Japans, den heiligen Berg Fujisan, symbolisieren. Nach japanischem Glauben wohnen die Kami (Naturgeister oder -gottheiten) in den Bergen, da Berlin jedoch in dem Sinne keinen Berg hat, wurde kurzerhand das Sony Center als künstlicher Wohnsitz für die Kami gebaut, damit Sony auch in Europa im Schutz dieser steht.
