A brush pen inspired by the beautiful cherry blossoms in Japan
Bimoji Fude Pen with Japanese pattern
What is the Bimoji Fude Pen with Japanese pattern?
Brush Pens dressed in Japanese-style paper featuring Japanese patterns and motifs, which are released every year by the company famous for brush pens, Kuretake.
This year in 2019, we designed the pattern to showcase the beauty of the changing of cherry blossoms, flowers which are a famously recognized as Japanese icons.
Cherry blossoms are very well known flowers in Japan and are incredibly famous for sightseeing in spring. Cherry blossoms are recognized as Japanese flowers by foreign people as well.
The blooming of the flowers and beautiful dance of falling cherry blossom petals indicate the arrival of spring. When the flowers scatter and leaves begin to sprout, you feel the sense that spring is ending and summer is starting. Cherry blossoms change in a short period of time and captivate the viewer. A favorite motif is that of “cherry blossoms and autumn leaves” which, while undoubtedly beautiful, is an unrealistic image; in reality, cherry blossoms bloom only in spring, not in the fall when autumn leaves are observed.

This design illustrates the new cherry blossom buds that are about to bloom, and displays the beauty of the flowers at full bloom. There is a crane under the cherry blossom tree. In Japan, cranes are a symbol celebrating longevity and prosperity.
The design which combines circles in the background is called “Shippou” which represents good luck.
“Hanami” means flower viewing beneath cherry blossom trees. Cherry blossoms lit by moonlight is breathtaking and a spectacle to behold. “Yozakura” is meant to be cherry blossoms at night, the celebration of Hanami at night time.
The “Yozakura” pattern expresses how the cherry blossoms can be lit by moonlight.
Similar to cherry blossoms during day time, nighttime cherry blossoms are also beautiful and have a magical ambiance. The pattern of clouds hanging in the background is called “Shippou” which represents good luck.
The cherry blossoms are fleeting, as they begin to be blown away by wind shortly after blooming. Like a snowstorm, petals of cherry blossoms are scattered, and cover the world in pink.
From the time they first bloom, cherry blossoms take a week to reach full bloom. After reaching full bloom in a week, cherry blossoms begin to fall. The best time for cherry blossom viewing is about 10 days before becoming fully bloomed, as flowers fall shortly after you saw it blooming. The “Sakuramau” pattern expresses this evanescence.
The “Sakuramau” pattern is designed along with the tallest mountain in Japan, Mt. Fuji and fluttering petals. The contrast of colors between the blue Mt. Fuji and pink cherry blossom implies the contrast of, not only the color, but the transient nature of cherry blossoms and the unchanging of Mt. Fuji.
The pattern in the background is called “Sayagata”, and the meaning behind it is continuing on forever without interruption.
After cherry blossom season, green sprouts will emerge. Cherry blossoms that remain on the branches leave a lasting feeling of spring into the summer time. “Nagori Zakura” patterns reveal a time when all cherry blossom flowers are blown away, and the trees are green. Simultaneous feelings of excitement for the oncoming summer, and feelings of sadness for the end of spring.
This background pattern is referred to as “Hishi monyo”, which holds a meaning of fertility and abundance of harvest.
It is impossible to see cherry blossoms at the same time as autumn trees. The pattern “Sakuranimomiji” is a traditional design which paints a magical image of cherry blossoms and autumn trees together, a circumstance that does not occur in real life. Impressive contrasting shapes between the rounded cherry blossom petals and angular autumn leaves.
The continuous design of the background pattern “Ichimatsu Moyou” represents fertility and expanding businesses.
