SHO-CHIKU-BAI is a Japanese word representing the essence of three different plants – pine (sho), bamboo (chiku) and plum (bai). The word is often used at auspicious ceremonial occasions such as New Year or weddings, or for describing Japanese cultural activities such as art, literature, flower arrangement or restaurant courses.

These three plants symbolise natural inner strength, resistance to hardship and longevity. In nature, the pine tree stays evergreen through the cold winter and its needles stay sharp. Bamboo also stays green and beautiful in heavy snow. It’s tough and flexible, yet never breaks in harsh winds. Plum is the only flower to bloom in winter, indicating the fact that spring is coming soon. This reflects beauty and optimism despite times of adversity!

So we offer these package plans to you, wishing for you the energising spirit of inner strength and looking forward to your brighter future!
