Help identify two Kanji, translations
  • Can you help me identify the Kanji in this frame? I think the second one is 雅 but am having trouble finding the first one.

    What are the literal translations for those Kanji?

    Japanese use those words to describe the cherry blossoms as "beautiful but not showy." Is that what it really means? Thanks.

    It's from a trailer for a documentary called The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom:
  • It's 優雅, a word that means something like "elegance".
  • Thanks jenlit!

    So is the director dramatizing the word or is it another reading?

Howdy, Stranger!
