This edition of Karuizawa is decorated with the image of CHO butterflies.
Butterfly has been a very meaningful symbol in Japanese culture for ages. These beautiful creatures carry a number of meanings, but are most commonly associated with the symbolism of metamorphosis, eternity, womanhood and love. Japanese perceive the butterfly to be a ‘soul of the living and the dead’, as a result of the popular belief that spirits of the dead take the form of a butterfly when on their journey to the other world and eternal life. Therefore it is a sort of social norm for Japanese people to treat butterflies with the due respect. If a butterfly flies into one’s house, you would not try to catch it, but you would let it accommodate in you homestead. Also, the butterfly has become a symbol for young girls as they spread their wings and emerge into womanhood. This natural metamorphosis from a girl into a woman recalls the transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly.
