Cherry blossom is the most beloved flowers in Japan. Once cherry blossoms come in full bloom, people enjoy hanami or picnic under cherry blossoms. Cherry blossom is a symbol of success in Japan, and we say "sakura saku" literary meaning "cherry blossom blooms" but it really means your success. Here, winter (Jan. to early March) is the season for entrance examinations for high school and university, and people gift cherry blossom items or cards decorated with cherry blossom stickers etc to students wishing that their cherry blossom will bloom.

The inspirations of her illustrations often come from little flowers and plants you can find on the roadside in Japan. She lives in a very countryside of Kyoto with lots of nature, and she gets inspired by little plants, flowers and insects while taking a walk. She wishes for you to enjoy the nature of Japan through her products. Her illustrations are drawn by using Japanese traditional paints such as powdered mineral pigments and hide glue.
