Sakura In The Center Of Yerevan In Memory Of The Japanese People


 What I saw today was really beautiful and breathtaking. There’s a sakura tree growing right at the center of our city. Who could ever think of it?

The plate on the fence says: “In Memory of the Japanese People.” And there’s a signature beneath: “SAMURAI.”

The tree is planted in front of the “Samurai” sushi-bar at the beginning of Baghramyan avenue. But it is very modest and unnoticeable. I wouldn’t notice it if a couple of women weren’t standing there examining the japanese phenomenon.

Actually, Sakura is a cherry tree. But it is also the symbol of Japan.  The cherry blossom is the flower of flowers to the Japanese people. It symbolizes their national character. This is because the life of a samurai of feudal times was proverbially compared to the short-lived cherry blossoms that last “no more than three days”, for a samurai was always ready to sacrifice his life for the sake of his master. Another saying is that “what the cherry is among flowers is the samurai among men”.

We remember the victims of Japanese disasters and mourn with the world.

    I drop a leave a response each time I appreciate a article on
    a website or I have something to contribute to the conversation.
    Usually it is caused by the passion communicated in the
    post I browsed. And on this article Sakura In The Center Of Yerevan In Memory Of The Japanese People | GRAGET.
    I was actually excited enough to leave a thought 🙂 I do
    have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be simply me or do a few of the remarks come across like they are left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you list the complete urls of all your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    The idea is that as you move to the right the notes ascend in pitch, and they get lower as you
    move to the left. If you spend most of your days in your home office and attending networking events and meetings
    then an upscale casual mode of dress will be what you reach for most
    often and where you get the most mileage. And different
    internet shopping stores are providing the services,
    which are related to the health and beauty of the customers.
