Japan’s iconic flower represents the beauty and brevity of life.

Every spring a tapestry of pink blooms blankets the island nation of Japan, starting in the south and crawling northward. Cherry trees, orsakura, symbolize the evanescence of human life in Japanese culture—their blossoms are both brilliant and brief.

“They serve as a visual reminder of how precious and how precarious life is,” says photographer Albert Bonsfills, who captured the exuberant spirit of hanami, one of Japan’s oldest and most revered traditions.
