The artificial cherry blossom tree – The Cherry Blossom Festival in Japan
The time of flowering of the cherry tree in Japan, sakura , is sacred and gives rise to a ritual, the hanami, which literally means “to look at the flowers”. This unchanging ritual dates from the Heian period (794-1185), a key period in terms of culture and the arts. The cherry blossom then takes on a sacred meaning in Japan: it announces the time of planting rice and therefore the time of offerings to the kami (the gods). It is also the symbol of the transience of life, of the beauty of impermanence. This symbolism was widely used by the Samurai and during World War II, reincarnation in sakura was the gift reserved for men (bushi, warriors) who died in battle. Sakura is a national event in Japan, a real celebration. It is during the spring that it occurs, enchanting the parks and gardens for two weeks.
