The cherry blossom holds a special place among flowers in Japan as the national flower and the epitome of the Japanese sense of beauty. Cherry trees bloom in delicate colors that signal the arrival of spring. The people of Japan have an enduring love affair with cherry blossoms; for them, the splendor of cherry trees in full bloom and the grace with which petals fall from the branches exemplify their ideal of life and death.

This beautiful volume is a collection of sakura expressed through masterpieces of art and folk crafts from the Heian period, beginning in 794, to the present day. Many invaluable drawings of the cherry blossom have also been included. This definitive edition presents a general survey of sakura celebrated in art and daily life.
