you see those little flowers in the walls?
they are cherry blossom’s, [A cherry blossom is the flower of any of several trees of genus Prunus, particularly the Japanese Cherry, Prunus serrulata, which is sometimes called sakura after the Japanese (桜 or 櫻; さくら).]
edit: “In Japan, cherry blossoms flowers also symbolize clouds due to their nature of blooming en masse, besides being an enduring metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life….The transience of the blossoms, the extreme beauty and quick death, has often been associated with mortality.” [dances crazily around that word]
"The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short.”
Sakura’s, in japanese culture (the little i could grasp while researching) can mean two complete opposite things: LIFE and DEATH. Or, simply, how beautiful is life and how fast we cease to live it,
Ohh very interesting! I was actually talking to Karen last night about the cherry blossom symbology. We knew we had to do some research on it because of it popping up in the promo.
