TOURIST DAMAGES CHERRY BLOSSOMS BY KICKING, SHAKING AND CLIMBING IT JUST TO RECREATE CHERRY BLOSSOM RAIN EFFECT FOR THEIR PHOTOS!
Whenever on a vacation, holiday or even a simple gathering, there is always a moment to capture in time on your camera to savor the moment but sometimes capturing a picture perfect moment can never be easy and it takes effort. Some people go the distance to recreate these picture perfect moments, but today’s story involves a bunch of uncivilized tourist going the distance to damage a tree for their perfect ‘selfie’.
Once again, Chinese tourist from China have managed to find themselves on the news again. As if they haven’t had enough hate from everyone else from all over the world already.
Recently on the Chinese and Japanese media, there were stories on how many uncivilized tourists from the mainland of China have been damaging cherry blossom trees by shaking, climbing and even kicking them to make the pink cherry blossom petals to fall beneath them for just a picture!
Areas in which these beautiful trees grow are being destroyed by these Tourist who come to visit, fear not authorities are doing their best to catch these tourists red-handed. Authorities in Nanjing who catch these tourist acting out against the state-owned tree violently will be blacklisted from even entering into areas like these and in an addition, fines.
Recently, these cherry blossoms have been blooming in Nanjing. A woman who visited the area where the beautiful trees grow was caught climbing the tree for a photo and in the end getting herself stuck in the tree as well (Good job, she knows how to get up but she can’t get down)
She isn’t the only one caught on camera behaving this way. Another man was caught kicking the cherry blossom tree just to make the petals fall while he poses for the camera. You can see too the amount of petals already fallen from the tree!
I can’t imagine how embarrassing enough it is for a country to be represented like that. The reason why I say that is because, the Japanese media have coined these uncivilized behavior as “Chinese-style flower viewing/appreciation” because it happens often enough already. The behavior is refereed towards the Chinese tourists from mainland China who climb, kick, bend the branches and even pluck some of the flowers just to put it in their hair.
Their actions have resulted in many broken branches, irreversible damage unto the trees and even littering in their parks that the cherry blossom trees tend to grow.
A Weibo user felt so humiliated by their own countrymen even posted on the social media site saying, “Please spread this news! Don’t make ‘Chinese-style blossom appreciation’ a thing in Japan.”
Chinese tourist have always been a hassle to deal with, I’ve even seen it with my own eyes when I’m abroad and I’m pretty sure you have too. I understand that not all fellow Chinese people from China are like that, even if it’s only ten percent of the population, that’s still 10 million of them! Clearly we know who’s the culprit of the damaged public property.
What do you all think about this whole situation, what should authorities do about this matter? Have you yourself faced against with other Chinese Tourist and seen them behave like this? Let us know.
