The History

Sakura is the Japanese word for the cherry blossom tree, which is symbolic within the Japanese culture. On that note, when we delve into its history, Sakura had a big impact with the Samurais and Bushido (Bushido meaning the way of the Samurai, their code of ethics and way of life).

Sakura trees can be seen as an important symbol for life and the seasons, but to the Samurai they represent mortality. Sakura is a short-lived season during the spring, and the beauty of the cherry blossom parallels with the Samurai's way of life. Being warriors, they are taught about mortality and to enjoy life to the fullest. This is the spirit of Bushido and Sakura.
