Sakura is the most popular and famous flower symbol in Japan so much so that there’s even a festival to celebrate its arrival in the spring. Sakura is a symbol of wabi-sabi, an important worldview in Japan relating to the acceptance of transience and imperfection as well as gentleness and kindness.
