Today’s picture is an ukiyo-e triptych by Utagawa Toyokuni I 歌川豐國 (1795-1825). The title is 花の風, which means blossoms in the wind, obviously cherry blossoms. Each of the three pictures shows a group of people gathering under a cherry tree in full bloom. In the middle and on the right side they are hanging paper stripes on the branches containing good wishes for the future. On the left side two women try to lift a girl. A strong wind is blowing, the sleeves are flapping and some blossoms are lying on the ground. The scene is cheerful.
