Manufacturer Description

Sakura: Hors d' commerce

Hideyuki Katagiri

"On a spring day, I visited Seiunji Temple, which is near the area where I live. It is known for its centuries-old cherry trees. I was taking a rest when a tree with an interesting trunk caught my interest. Then I noticed a second cherry tree; I could see them—one above the other. I think it makes the photo more glamorous."

About the Photograph:

The Japanese word for cherry blossom flower is "sakura," which symbolizes renewal and hope. While there are many different varieties of cherry blossoms, this specific image is of the Edo-Higan tree and the Beni-Shidare tree. The white petals seen in the front of this image belong to the Endo-Higan tree. This tree gets its name after the spring equinox, or "higan" which represents the time when they bloom. The bright pink petals in the background belong to the Beni-Shidare tree, or the weeping cherry tree. Every spring, for hundreds of years, these flowers bloom and display the beautiful shades of pink and white flowers.
