Two of the most important Japanese icons are the rising sun and cherry blossom (Sakura).

According to Japanese legend, Emperor Go-Daigo (1288-1339) was exiled to Oki Island in the Sea of Japan, from whence he admired a cherry tree, that now a thousand years old still blooms today.

Caught in the early morning sunlight “Daigo-zakura” stands proudly as a potent symbol of Japan.
