The label of this series pays tribute to Japanese culture's deep roots, which reconcile tradition and modernity. It features classic figures such as samurai and geisha, along with the immutability of the scenery dominated by Mount Fuji and the Japanese crane symbol of eternity. The Sakura trees and mix of gender and generation of the characters, as well as the choice of resolutely modern graphics, evoke the spirit of renewal blowing over the land of the Rising Sun.
