For Japan


Bracelets (martenitsa) in memory of those lost in the Japanese tsunami hang on a cherry tree at the entrance to the Japanese Gardens.

I am sorry, but i think this are not bracelets for memory, this is "martenitsa", this is something like tradition in Bulgaria. Whttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martenitsa

Allure de Croisiere, thanks so much. I thought there must be a special name but bracelet was the nearest I could get. I've added 'martenitsa' to the intro. Many thanks again.
