The annual Hanami ceremony from Japan celebrates the fleeting beauty of the Sakura blossom. This is an ancient tradition which is observed when the cherry blossom trees all over Japan come in to bloom. Cherry blossoms carry important symbolic meaning in Japan.
When spring arrives, so does hope, optimism and joy and the Sakura is enjoyed by watching the dwindling flower petals whilst walking or sitting under the Sakura trees. The Japanese compare the beauty of the delicate Sakura to life itself because, like life, its beauty is short lived and precious and should be enjoyed to the fullest.

When it comes into contact with water, the gel will transform into a rich and relaxing foam. Massage the shower foam onto damp skin and ride of in the shower. Your reward? Silky soft skin.
Step 3: Sakura Body Cream
Deepen your experience with the Sakura body cream. The body cream has a special whipped consistency allowing it to be easily applied and absorbed by the skin while it offers you at the same time the nourishment of a rich moisturizer without leaving a sticky residue.
