Sakura Fubuki

-春-
日本の春といえば、桜。
美しく咲き乱れる満開の期をすぎ、
風に揺蕩う(たゆたう)桜吹雪や
床一面にひろがる桜の花びらに想いを馳せ、
古くから「もののあわれ」を好む日本人にとって
春の桜は象徴的な存在です。

Spring is here!
And in Japan this means Sakura season,
when in the space of a week or two the beloved cherry blossoms reach full bloom and fall to the ground in showers of delicate pink snowflakes known as Sakurafubuki.
Occupying a special place in Japanese culture this fleeting phenomenon symbolises life’s impermanence and continued renewal.
