In Japan, the word "flower" refers to the cherry blossom (sakura).
Japanese love this beautiful flower.
"Cherry blossoms are beautiful because they fall so soon", they think.
This sense of beauty is also found in Japanese art. Mt. Fuji, the Japanese highest mountain, is regarded as the symbol of the Japanese beauty because of its beautiful shape.
It has often been chosen for the subject of Japanese painting, Ukiyo-e and literature. Nakajima Chinami often represent the static beauty.
