Sakura (cherry blossoms)

The quintessential expression of what the Japanese call mono no aware, or the impermanence of things, the sakura is one of Japan's most beloved icons.

Beauty in every moment

For the Japanese, the sakura is synonymous with spring.

Blossoming for just a week or two and then withering as quickly as they came, sakura flowers set their intense beauty alongside their very temporary nature, reminding us that every single moment is one to be treasured.
