The Best Pictures Of This Year’s Japanese Cherry Blossoms

The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.

The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.

Cherry blossoms try to kill me every year.

This definitely caught my eye! I have always been obsessed with Viking culture and Norse Mythology. This Gibson SG features a detailed carving of Odin with his two ravens Huginn and Muninn and at his feet his two wolves Geri and Freki.

The 3rd and 12th fret positions feature a metal runic inlay and a Valknut symbol respectively. Upgraded Schaller hardware, fully rewired and loaded with a custom set of Seymour Duncan’s Black Winter Humbuckers.

There is a ‘metal’ band running along the body edge, binding the waxed wooden paneling.  The only actual metal added to the SG is the steel batwing pickguard.

PREPARE! Winter Is Coming! 

P.S. home boys in Amon Amarth need to play these on stage!
