“Dead bodies are buried under the cherry trees.
You have to believe it. Otherwise, you couldn’t possibly explain the beauty of the cherry blossoms. I was restless, lately, because I couldn’t believe in this beauty. But I have now finally understood: dead bodies are buried under the cherry trees. You have to believe it.”
– Motojirō Kajii, opening of “Under the Cherry Trees” (a popular Japanese quote, especially the first sentence)
