Design: Long cherished and immortalized in Japanese culture, Sakura, the cherry blossom, is the ultimate symbolic flower. Signifying life, beauty, birth, and new beginnings, its dropping without wilting also symbolizes bittersweet transience and the struggle against it.
Notes: The start of spring is a reawakening of colors, scents and warmth. Nature renews itself and gives people a new beginning. In Japan, this is the time of the cherry blossom - a colorful festival of the senses, filled with the subtle perfume of the pink-white national flower of the Land of the Rising Sun. Since the Japanese emperor Saga held the first cherry blossom festival in the year 812, it has become a national tradition that captivates the whole country and celebrates the start of the long-awaited spring. The fascination of the cherry blossom is immortalized in the exquisite Montblanc Sakura 333 Fountain Pen from the Special Theme Edition Sakura. The barrel and the cap are made of the finest Meissen porcelain and decorated with delicately exquisite hand-painted cherry blossoms and the Meissen crossed swords symbol. The 18k gold nib is a tribute to the symbol of Japanese aesthetics - with the word "Sakura" engraved in Kanji characters.
