This month’s theme is “Sakura” (the cherry blossoms).
As a flower symbolizing spring, “Sakura” is familiar to Japanese people, and the majority of Japanese like “Sakura”.
“Sakura” is one of the special flowers in Japan.
For example, it was thought that “God of cereals” dwelled in the “Sakura” tree and was very important for agriculture from the ancient days.
In addition, the flowering of “Sakura” is used as the signal to start agriculture. In Japanese spring, “Sakura” trees will be started blossoming all at once.
The most beautiful period of cherry blossoms is very short, which is compared to the fragility of life.
Well, we will enjoy “Hanami” (cherry blossom viewing) during the short “Sakura” peak period. When once Sakura is in full bloom, Japanese gather under the Sakura trees and do picnic parties to enjoy the dazzling blossoms as well as food and drinks.
Daytime “Hanami” is wonderful, but the cherry blossoms that were lighted up at night are exceptional. It is called “Yozakura” (Night cherry blossoms)!
The cherry blossoms please us very beautifully in the daytime at night all day.
This April, it’s our pleasure to deliver the beauty of the Sakura, an icon of Japan to you. You are going to discover a wide range of Sakura-themed homeware, stationery and snacks, which will invite you instantly to Japan’s springtime.
