The fragility of the cherry blossom, blooming brilliantly for a short while and then scattering to the winds. Carefully selected white sandalwood, cherry flowers and sweetly spreading vanilla visit like brilliant, blinding light. The fragrance of a dream that comes in the middle of the day.
The Omuro-zakura cherry trees at Ninna-ji Head Temple; blooming with golden flowers. With their overwhelming beauty, the late blooming Omuro-zakura cherry have been loved by the Japanese people for more than 400 years, spreading as they do across the grounds of this temple that itself is home to many culturally significant Japanese buildings and works of art. The way they bloom vividly and beautifully every year before scattering to the winds after only a short period is the perfect representation of Japanese aesthetics and fragility.
