Cherry Blossoms, also known as the famous Japanese Sakura flower, are well known around the world for their gorgeously delicate, radiant, and transient beauty, but they are so much more than just beautiful cherry blossom trees. The Sakura flower are tied directly to Japanese culture , history and identity. The Sakura came to embody the 'wabi-sabi' philiophosy and ideals of hope, impermanence and renewal for the Japanese. Each year the Japanese people gather to observe the blossoms in all their beauty, it is a reminder that although life is beautiful it is extremely short and should be cherished.
The Cherry Blossom season only lasts about a month with a 14 day blooming period , so these cherry blossoms are extremely special.

WHAT IS A TSURIKAWA? The 'hang ring' otherwise known in Japan as a 'Tsurikawa' were originally attached inside cars, busses and trains for passengers to hold onto to keep their balance while the vehicile was in motion. Tsurikawas soon became popular amongst Japanese youths and car enthusiasts often stealing them from trains to hang behind their cars as a symbol of rebellion and disrepect to authority. Car enthusiasts still to this day flaunt them to express their freedom and preserve tradition.
