As her name suggests, "Sakura" is used as a motif to express her princess-like elegance.
It is a design that you can feel the power of her hidden while the flurry of cherry blossom petals like a wild princess.
A prostitute who is the highest peak in Yoshiwara.
The beauty and luxury that overwhelms her surroundings, and her boldness is designed to cut the sword even for a man who is good at it. The true strength of the fried roll is expressed while giving a femininity with the motif of the hairpin of the heavy place.
Not only the beauty of appearance,
but also a master of splendid dance
