About our design

For the Japanese, the cherry blossom represents the transience of life, as it is a very delicate flower that blooms for a very short time. The fallen cherry blossom is not taken lightly either. If often represents the beauty of snow and there are many connections made in Japanese literature or poetry to a fallen cherry blossom and snow. This also has been extended to the life of a warrior whose life was ended early in battle. (Source: http://www.flowerspictures.org)
