Magic Sakura - The Desktop Cherry Blossom

Cherry blossom season is coming in two weeks time! For those who want a piece of this cherry blossom season to themselves, they can get the Magic Sakura (まじっく桜), a desktop toy that recreates the hanami spirit in miniature.

The paper tree stands at 13.5cm (5.3″) tall and looks rather bare until you add the included “magic water”. Then pink blossom starts to appear within a few hours, eventually covering the whole tree. I guess this is the equivalent of a mini Christmas tree for the Japanese! You can have your sakura experience at home or work, minus all the crowds and fuss.

The Magic Sakura is priced 680 JPY and is available now inside Japan. Oh no but I do want one of these oh so badly! :O (Japan Trends)
