Cherry blossoms are one of the significant changes that define the spring scenery in Japan. From the moment the cherry trees start to grow buds, Japanese people look forward to seeing them in full bloom, praising the falling blossoms as a “Cherry Blossom Blizzard,” even admiring the petals flowing in the river. Especially for those in the northern countries, who spend a long and harsh winter, the arrival of cherry blossoms represent light and new beginning. The Tsugaru Handblown "Sakura Sakura'' motif was born with such deep emotions cherry blossoms can bring to people’s lives. Our handmade glasses expressed various expressions of cherry blossoms such as brightness, beauty, and fragility.
