Every cherry blossom season in Japan we get not just beautiful scenery, but some pretty precious animal and sakura interactions too (like this shiba inu who loves cherry blossoms!).

This video, taken in Tobu Zoo in Japan, is definitely a case of not knowing we needed something until we had it.

Most people had probably never thought about how a penguin would react to seeing cherry blossoms for the first time, but as it turns out, it’s completely adorable.

Hina the Humboldt penguin looks completely enraptured by the falling petals, looking around in wonder.

Some commenters wondered if the reason she looks so engaged by the cherry blossom storm is because it reminds her of snow, something she won't get to see much of at home in Saitama.
