The grounds of the Japan Mint contain many different varieties of flowering cherry trees. Every year, during the cherry blossom (sakura) season, a path through its grounds approximately 560 m long is opened to the public for cherry blossom viewing. This event is known as “Sakura-no-toorinuke,” literally meaning walking through the cherry blossom, because people walk along a one-way path while viewing the cherry blossoms. Since its inception in 1883, it has remained popular as one of Osaka’s best-loved spring traditions.

The cherry blossom of the year is “Shogetsu," a famous variety of cherry tree found on the banks of the Arakawa River in Tokyo, which was a famous cherry blossom viewing spot during the Meiji era. The flowers are initially damask pink, gradually turning white, and eventually the dark red at the edge of the flower becomes more prominent. It has about 25 petals and one or two leafed pistils.

Highly limited and hard to find outside of Japan, this set is limited to 15,000 sets issued - but ONLY 289 sets were earmarked for markets outside of Japan!!
