What is Sakura?
Cherry blossoms, or sakura, are a symbol of spring in Japan and are deeply ingrained in Japanese culture. The cherry blossom is Japan's national flower and has been celebrated for centuries. The flower is associated with renewal and the fleeting nature of life, as the blossoms only last a few weeks before falling to the ground.
In Japan, cherry blossom viewing, or hanami, is a popular pastime. People gather under cherry blossom trees to picnics, drink sake, and celebrate the arrival of spring. The tradition is said to have originated in the 8th century, when aristocrats and samurai enjoyed viewing the cherry blossoms as a symbol of their wealth and power.
The cherry blossom tree is also a symbol of love and has been featured in many works of art, literature, and film. In modern times, the cherry blossom tree is a popular tourist attraction in Japan and can be found in many public parks and gardens. The trees are also cultivated in many other countries around the world, including the United States.
