Sakura, cherry blossoms have been representative of Japan and very special for Japanese past and now. People are looking forward to spring with subtle pink petals of cherry blossoms and embrace the short moment of their flowering.
In Edo period (1603-1868), people had same passion and we see it in many ukiyo-e prints beyond the categories such as landscapes, beauties and flowers and birds. Please enjoy beautiful Sakura season in ukiyo-e!
