Cherry blossoms—sakura in Japanese—have been one of the most familiar flowers in Japanese life since ancient times to the present, with a symbolic meaning unique to them. While cherry blossom viewing has become a global phenomenon of the spring season, including in Toronto, a variety of works of art with the sakura motif from ROM’s Japanese collection—from paintings, prints, and photographs, to ceramics, lacquer ware, and even arms—will attest to the significance of the flower in Japanese culture.

Re-conceived re-productions of Hiroshige’s Sakura-themed prints from JFT collection to be displayed for this occasion at The Japan Foundation, Toronto
