The signs of spring faintly waft as if snuggling up to you.

In spring, as sakura blossoms blanket the islands of Japan from the south to the north like a delicate pink relay race, people’s minds begin to fill with sakura-tinted compassion. The graceful fragrance of the blossoms lift our moods. Perhaps this is why we feel joy watching cherry blossoms dancing in the wind.

Modest excellence, Elegance without affectation.

Tsubaki has been known across the world as the “Japanese Rose”. It is widely known for its oriental and exquisite beauty. You too can adorn this symbolic flower of the heroine that appeared in the romantic opera La traviata. In the language of flowers, Tsubaki means “modest excellence”, “elegance without affectation”, and “virtuous humility”. You could say that the red Tsubaki is the ideal symbol of Japanese women.
