Cherry Blossom
Why Japanese people love Cherry Blossom so much?

1- It is a symbol of Spring Arrival, and start and beginning
We enjoy flower viewing, Hanami (花見), while enjoying drinks and foods under cherry blossom trees.
April is a season when new class starts at schools.
Children wear new uniform to go to school, to meet new friends. 
It is a happy symbol!

2. -Its ephemeral beauty evoke  emotion of impermanence and transience of human life.
Cherry Blossoms bloom splendidly with a subtle and modest scent.
Their petals are "petit", however many petit buds bloom one after another, being one together as one gorgeous tree, playing harmony, like a relay.
As one tree, they are simply sublime.
Their life is ephemeral. It is only 3 to 5 days that Cherry Blossoms are scattered on the ground,
after their full blooming, like a floral carpet.
Sadly, their beauty and life is momentary.
The way petals are scattered on the ground, after their brilliant but ephemeral blooming, look similar to a life of human being;  "Ukiyo" -"Floating world".
Cherry blossom speaks to heart of Japanese people and tells, "Life is transient, Respect it."
in a word, Cherry blossom is a symbol of Life, for Japanese people. 


🌸 There are 600 kinds of cherry blossom in Japan. They have been developed from mountain cherry blossoms) in Edo period.(1603-1868) by Japanese people. 🌸
