The cherry blossom (sakura) is Japan's unofficial national flower. It has been celebrated for many centuries and holds a very prominent position in Japanese culture. It's also a metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life.

Beginning in the Heian era (794-1185), the sakura were a steadfast theme of poetry:

Yo no naka ni
taete sakura no
nakariseba
haru no kokoro wa
nodokekaramashi

If only there were no
cherry trees in this world,
our hearts in springtime
would then perhaps
not be so aflutter.
—trans. John T. Carpenter
