Sakura - the Japanese cherry blossoms are a timeless metaphor for human existence.
Blooming season is powerful, glorious and intoxicating, but tragically short-lived — a visual reminder of Life, Death and Renewal.
No one in history personified this metaphor more than the samurai, the warriors of feudal Japan who lived by bushido (“the way of the warrior”) — a strict moral code of respect, honour and discipline.
Sakura have therefore always signaled the beginning of Spring, a time of renewal and optimism.
