Cherry blossoms at their peak typically last anywhere from 1-2 weeks, depending on location, weather, and other factors. With such a short-lived occasion, people around the world make it an annual event to gather with friends and family for pictures and to enjoy the sight together. These areas can go from practically empty to massive crowds of people, then back to emptiness in just a few weeks.
Spring, and sakura more specifically, is often used in anime to symbolize starting over again or saying goodbye to the past, embodied by the sakura branch on the right sleeve. Down the back, the phrase「今まで、ありがとう」roughly translates to "Thank you for everything", to represent the nostalgic feeling of cherry blossoms - moving forward in life while being wistful of past memories.
