  • Her name, Sakura, means cherry blossoms.
  • In fact, "Sakura Sakura" (さくら さくら, "Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms"), also known as "Sakura", is a traditional Japanese folk song depicting spring, the season of cherry blossoms. It is often sung in international settings as a song representative of Japan. Contrary to popular belief, the song did not originate in ancient times; it was a popular, urban melody of the Edo period.
