Japanese Flower Names

There are quite a few Japanese proverbs that include flowers. Flower is hana in Japanese. Although hana also means, “nose”, it should be obvious by the context what is meant, so don't worry. Also, they appear different when written in kanji (as they do not share the same kanji characters).

It means, “Some things are better left unsaid; Silence is golden”.Takane no hana 高嶺の花 — Literally translated as, “Flower on a high peak”. It means, “something out of one's reach”. Some things are beautiful to look at, but realistically, there is no way you can get them. The object might be something that you want very much but can't have.Hana ni arashi 花に嵐 — There is a famous Japanese saying, “Tsuki ni muragumo, hana ni arashi (The moon is often hidden by a cloud; flowers are often scattered by the wind)”. “Hana ni arashi” is a shortened version of, “Tsuki ni muragumo, hana ni arashi”. It means that “life often brings misfortune at a time of great happiness” or “Nothing is certain in this world”.Hana yori dango 花より団子 — Literally translated as, “Dumplings rather than flowers”. It means that the practical is preferred over the aesthetic. In spring, the Japanese traditionally go to the countryside or parks for flower viewing (hanami).

Tonari no hana wa akai 隣の花は赤い — Literally translated as, “The neighbor's flowers are red”. It means that the grass is always greener on the other side. There is also another saying, “Tonari no shibafu wa aoi (The neighbor's lawn is green)”.Here are more expressions including the word flower.Hanashi ni hana ga saku 話に花が咲く — To have a lively discussion.

Japanese Flower Names

The hibiscus flower is another popular flower tattoo. In Japanese culture the hibiscus flower has one of the simplest meanings of all flowers in Japan. It holds just a singular meaning: gentle. In Hawaiian culture the hibiscus flower symbolizes royalty, power, and respect. Often worn by the old kings and queens of the Hawaiian islands, the hibiscus became associated with the ruling class. The hibiscus flower tattoo can simultaneously hold all of these meanings, but interpretations can be influenced by the context of the tattoo. For example, a hibiscus appearing in a Japanese sleeve would be more likely to be considered to mean “gentle”, rather than power or respect. A hibiscus tattoo that stands alone may have a less restrictive interpretation of its meaning.

The cherry blossom tattoo is common in Japanese style tattooing. Often depicted as falling petals being carried by the wind, the cherry blossom reflects a vary unique trait of Japanese culture. They call it “Mono no aware” – the pathos of things, or more literally, an empathy towards things. Another way to put it would be to say “a sensitivity toward ephemera”. What does that mean? The cherry blossoms are quite beautiful and delicate, but are not in bloom long. The blossoms are blown from the trees with the slightest wind. This means that their beauty fades rapidly. The Japanese people see this as a metaphor for life which echoes their own mortality.

The best part of orchid flower tattoos is the sheer number of options. There are over 25,000 kinds of orchid flowers, which means that your odds of finding one that suits your purpose may be easier (or harder) than you might expect.
