Japan is a country renowned for its rich history and traditions. Now you can enjoy two of its most celebrated symbols, cherry blossoms and Mount Fuji, with these unique and lovely Japanese good luck charms.
Cherry blossoms, or sakura,
are beloved throughout Japan for their delicate and fragrant pink and white flowers. For centuries, Japanese have admired cherry blossoms during their mid-January to early May blooming period, in a practice known as "hanami," or flower viewing.
With their stunning yet short-lived loveliness, Japan's unofficial national flower has come to symbolize the fleeting beauty of clouds and other temporary elements found in the natural world.
Mount Fuji, or Fuji-san
, is another highly-recognized symbol both within and outside of Japan. As Japan's highest mountain, Mt. Fuji is located in the country's central Chubu region west of Tokyo, on the island of Honshu. This remarkable mountain has been immortalized in woodblock prints by the famed Japanese artist Hokusai
, and in countless stories, paintings and other works of art.
With these eye-catching good luck charms from Japan, you can carry the iconic imagery of Mt. Fuji and cherry blossoms with you almost anywhere. These small, round metal charms are made up of delicate pink cherry blossoms, lined with gold-colored trim. One side of the charm displays "Fuji-san's" snow-capped peak, while the other shows the character for good fortune, against a bright red background.
Inside these hollow charms hangs a tiny gold bell that is visible through lace-like petals of connected cherry blossoms. A braided red polyester lanyard allows these intricate Japanese collectables to hang from your purse, cell phone or backpack. (Discontinued, 7 available only)
