Sakura (桜) (cherry blossom) has a big importance in Japanese culture; this is why it is a common design for Japanese ware. The cherry blossom is so familiar to Japanese that, when they hear the word flower, the first thing that springs to their mind is the cherry blossom. This image of the cherry blossoms embodies “Mujokan” (the feeling of transience and emptiness) and “Isagiyosa” (giving up gracefully) which the Japanese think is the most beautiful way of life.
