No other flower is more associated with Japanese culture than cherry blossoms. Since the days of courtly life in the Heian era (794-1185), the gentle flowers have inspired countless poems, paintings, and flower-viewing parties. Proclaiming the arrival of spring, blossoms are associated with youth and new beginnings. Yet their temporary nature - here today, tomorrow scattering in the wind - encapsulates the transience of life and the constant change that both nature and humans must endure.
