The beginning of Spring in Japan is signaled by the opening of the Ume (plum) blossoms and the chirping of the Mejiro (white eyed bird). Spring begins in early February for the Japanese and this pin certainly gives a feeling of new life!
Featuring golden branches, the little addition of color at the base of the branch is actually a houju, a symbol of purification in Shinto and Buddhism.
About the Collection
Our Ume to Mejiro was the second Pin Club pin. Our Pin Club is themed around Japanese Traditional culture and features a monthly Enamel pin, sticker sheet, and exclusive art print (and some sort of edible treat). By joining our club, you save quite a bit to have more than just buying the pin on our website as it also includes the extra goodies and shipping in the cost. Check out the Patreon Pin Club!
