Spring has come sooner than expected this year with cherry blossoms flowering almost two weeks earlier than usual. It will be a little while before it’s safe to dance with strangers at music festivals again, so it’s just as well that spring is all about exploring the great outdoors. Kickstart your fitness routine by taking to some of the city’s most scenic jogging tracks, or take a socially distanced stroll to view the season’s dazzling flowers – they’re not all sakura, either.
