Cherry blossoms are believed to symbolize the transience of life, which is also a major aspect of Buddhism. The cherry blossom or sakura is known for its short but significant blooming season, a natural process that metaphorically describes human life.
Delicate green and white cherry blossoms are highlighted with gold accents, and set against a dark green background. This kimono is produced in 100% Japanese cotton with a fine linen finish, and features traditional butterfly sleeves. A matching belt is included.
This kimono is available in two sizes: S/M and XL/Wide.
