6 Types of Cherry Blossom Pink

 , November 27, 2019
Dead bodies are buried under cherry blossoms! You have to believe it. Otherwise, you couldn’t possibly explain the beauty of the cherry blossom. I have been restless, lately, because I couldn’t believe in this beauty. But now I finally understand: Dead bodies are buried under the cherry trees! You have to believe it.
~ Motojiro Kajii, opening line of "Under the Cherry Trees"
Cherry blossom pink is a light pink color that has a slight glow such that it resembles a pastel. Cherry blossoms are primarily associated with Japanese culture where they symbolize Spring and the impermanence of all things as cherry blossoms bloom in brilliance but are soon gone. Cherry trees that produce blossoms come in more than 200 varieties and the blossoms themselves can be white to dark pink. The most popular type of cherry blossom in Japan, known as Somei Yoshino, is a clone from a single tree that has been propagated throughout Japan and the world. This tree produces an extremely light pink blossom that is almost white. The following are common variations of cherry blossom pink.

Notes

The Japanese government historically used cherry blossoms as a symbol of the ideal warrior that lives a short but passionate life. This is one of the reasons that Japan has several million cherry trees as they were historically planted as a form of propaganda.
Cherry blossom pink is commonly used to color seasonal Spring desserts in Japan. The color is also commonly used in kimono, dishware and Japanese tattoos.
Sakura is the Japanese word for cherry blossom.
