Mono no aware is the appreciation of beauty as a state which does not last. The Japanese term is used to describe the awareness of the transience of things and a bittersweet sadness at their passing.

The Sakura or cherry blossom tree is the epitome of this conception of beauty; the flowers bloom and then fall within a single week. It embodies beauty as a transient experience.
