What is sakura?
In Japanese, sakura is the Japanese term for ornamental cherry blossom trees and their blossoms. The short but overwhelming blooming period of these trees, and the transience of the cherry blossom, are seen as a symbol for the ephemeral nature of life and the concept of mono no aware.
Cherry blossoms are often depicted and utlized for their symbolic significance in Japanese art, film and manga. There are also several songs titled Sakura, ranging from old folk songs to modern pop hits.
Hanami is the century old Japanese practice of drinking under a blooming sakura or ume tree (Prunus mume). The tradition is said to have started during the Nara period, i.e. during the 8th century AD. Originally a favorite pastime for the elite of the Imperial Court, it eventually spread to samurai society and from there trickled down to the common people.
