Sakura trees hold a prominent place in most Japanese gardens, public parks, schools and public buildings. As the fiscal and school years both begin in April, the first day of school coincides with the cherry season in most of the island of Honshū.

The flowering of sakura has also been used for centuries as a metaphor to underline the ephemeral nature of beauty but also of life. Sakura thus serves to explain the important Japanese aesthetic concept of "mono no aware" (which can be translated as "sensitivity to the ephemeral").

Sakura is represented in many different ways on kimonos, stationery and tableware.
