Yama-zakura (Prunus jamasakura) flowers in Genji-yama

The period when the Sakura trees are in flower is very short.

Their white flowers bloom elegantly in the air all at once like bright fleecy clouds and flutter down all too soon like snowflakes of spring in the gentle wind.

The charming but fleeting spectacle of Sakura flowers is the essence of this season of growing and always make us feel the transience of life and the swift turning of the seasons.
