Japanese cherry blossoms, or sakura, are famous. They’re known for their beauty, delicacy, and limited lifespan. Even the Japanese go ga-ga for their sakura and they see them every year. And in animes, mangas, etc., they symbolize romance, beauty, wistful reminescence…But I get it now, Japan. I understand, because damn those sakura blossoms are beautiful. And the petals really do float on the wind when there’s a breeze. And they are oh so picturesque. Where before I wondered if sakura could really be all that, now, I nod in agreement.
