In response to a large demand for a Hana return, I decided to take advantage of JTK's new tripleshot capabilities to create an especially beautiful successor to the original.
        (tripleshot allows me the opportunity to include Hiragana (ひらがな) sublegends, and what better than Japanese on a Japanese themed set?)

This set is inspired by the Japanese tradition of seasonal flower viewing, which, as you may have guessed, is called Hanami (花見, literally "flower viewing").
While researching possible new directions to take Hana, I stumbled upon the Wikipedia article for this event and took inspiration.
The typical practice involves observing the cherry ("sakura", 桜) blossom and having outdoor parties underneath the trees. It must be carefully planned as the blossom only lasts a week or two.

As I read further, there was mention of a similar event that is held at the same time, however being more ancient in tradition --

"A more ancient form of hanami also exists in Japan, which is enjoying the plum blossoms (梅 ume) instead, which is narrowly referred to as umemi (梅見, plum-viewing).
This kind of hanami is popular among older people, because they are calmer than the sakura parties, which usually involve younger people and can sometimes be very crowded and noisy." (source: wikipedia)


Looking further into umemi, I stumbled upon this image of the beautiful plum blossom, with a vibrant gold-yellow center:



This inspired me to take that same gold-yellow and somehow work it into the set.

So, I decided to separate JTK Hanami into two synergistic colorways --


Hanami (花見)

Faithful to the original set, the Hanami variant offers a colorway inspired by the cherry blossom, complemented by a calm purple.
The hiragana sublegends synergize with the novelty and accent keys by using the same shade of pink.


and

Umemi (梅見)

The Umemi variant removes the purple modifiers in favor of a matching white, giving the set a clean and elegant look.
Taking inspiration from the ume blossom, a yellow-gold is chosen for the hiragana sublegends and accent key color.



Both colorways either be used alone or, as I hope to see, combined!
I thought this would be an awesome way to both revitalize the set and give more options to those who aren't huge fans of the original colorway.

I recommend you read the full Wikipedia article about Hanami if you are interested :D: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanami




Kits

Hanami (花見) Base Kit



Umemi (梅見) Base Kit



Hanami (花見) Novelties & Umemi (梅見) Novelties



In addition to the 12 prefectures found in previous Hana runs, I have included another 3 to allow extending them through across the entire numpad.
Both kits have a novelty with the Japanese character representing "hana" (flower, 花). Hanami also has the character for "sakura" (cherry blossom, 桜) while Umemi has the character for "ume" (plum blossom, 梅)
The previous flower and bamboo designs have been included, but this may be subject to change as new novelties are designed! Keep an eye out.


Matcha Kit (花見抹茶キット)


Due to popular demand I decided to add Matcha back as an option! Thanks to everyone who expressed your interest ;)


Hanami (花見) English Only Alphas



Umemi (梅見) English Only Alphas



Hanami (花見) Senshi Kit & Umemi (梅見) Senshi Kit


The Senshi (戦士) kit offers a unique set of novelties intended for videogames.
It is aimed primarily towards MOBAs such as League of Legends or DOTA 2, but can also apply to any game which utilizes any of these keys.
The Japanese translations for each key can be found in the kit image above.

A brief summary of the thought behind the design *(primarily inspired by League of Legends, sorry I don't play DOTA 2  :D):

  • Keys 1-6 are primarily used for "items" - this is differentiated by using a circle outline around the Japanese character.
  • QWE are the 3 basic abilities of most MOBA characters, leading them to be outlined in squares.
  • A tends to be used for attack-move, and S for stop. Since these are also common/low-cooldown abilities, they are outlined in squares.
  • R, D and F are used for special abilities which tend to have high cool-downs. As such, they are outlined in hexagons, and are offered in the matching accent color.
  • and finally, a DFO icon, made especially for those in China (the game is incredibly popular there, and it uses keys 1-6!)


Spacebars


* Both colors are included in the spacebars kit in order to reduce cost.

Oh excited to see this return! Sold my JTK Hana ages ago and have regretted it ever since.

Any chance to swap box backspace to a text backspace? I believe this mold is being made/used for some other JTK sets coming up, like Classic Red Cyrillic. Also any chance to bring back the green accents from Hana?

DSA Hana was one of the first sets I saw when I entered the community, but the price scared me away at the time. I also happened to miss JTK Hana when it ran so this is a happy sight to see! I love the additions of the Umemi and Senshi kits, the novelties are really nice and fit the theme well.

Yeah... I'm sorry about the lack of compatibility in this sense, if you follow GMK electric at all you'll know I made it a priority there. Sadly there hasn't been a precedent for NordeUK keys with JTK yet, but I think they are open to the idea. I just don't think it's worth pursuing for a Japanese themed set  :-[

Sadly the green keys are going to take a backseat for this run in favor of the gold... unless I see an overwhelming demand for the Matcha keys again. But I'd like to keep it to the current colors.
I'm definitely open to the idea of a text 1.5u backspace, curious what other people think! I just did what I saw everybody else doing hehe

If this is the case, there should be no issue in switching over if its what people want!



Finally a small update: renders are being made by JTK's renderer now, just hammering out the details on what boards to include, layouts, etc. Look forward to those! They will be posted both here and on my store's instagram (https://www.instagram.com/valasupply/)

Hana was my first DSA set. Good times.

Any chance you'd consider a separate alphas kit with regular English legends? At least for the Hanami version, as I never did get the JTK version of Hana when it ran and I regret not doing it.

Great work!

Both kits have a novelty with the Japanese character representing "hana" (flower, 花). Hanami also has the character for "sakura" (cherry blossom, 桜) while Umemi has the character for "ume" (plum blossom, 梅)

The render for the Umemi novelty set includes a 桜 key and, as far as I can tell, no 梅 key.  Is this just a mistake in the render, or did I miss it somewhere?

There is no soul without the green "hana".
To be honest, I like the design of "hana" very much. I also own the previous version of "hana". I am very happy that this time "hana" has added many new elements, but I suggest to provide a separate English alphabet area. Not everyone likes the Japanese alphabet area very much, at least I am.
In addition, a little suggestion. Compared with the three-color Japanese letters, the two-color Japanese letters can be more integrated into the theme without appearing too abrupt. Everything will appear more natural and harmonious.Most importantly, the cost will be much lower. You can refer to this point. Let’s take a look at JTK NightSakura, which is about to start group buying.
Finally, I hope to add PgUp of R2, PgDn of R3, and 1u Fn of R4 to meet more demand.

+1 for this! That would be awesome.

Also I'd love something similar to what Night Sakura done, which was the latin alphas for free when buying the base kit

Big update today!

1/31/21:
- Added Matcha kit due to popular demand!
- Fixed incorrect Kanji in Umemi novelties (桜 -> 梅)
- Added F13 keys to both base kits
- Added English only alphas option for both Hanami and Umemi
- Added mod-colored R1 `~ key to the Hanami base kit
- Changed 動 kanji to 行 for the 'A'/'Move' key in the Senshi kits (previous kanji was too difficult to print)

Please let me know if you notice anything incorrect/have any suggestions :)

Consider adding a R3 1.5u tab to alt alphas. This way a base kit + alt alphas can cover 2 keyboards!

Awesome update.

Will there be renders with the Matcha Kit? I love the color but curious to see how it matches with the Hanami Kit.

Yes, I'm currently coming up with layouts to be sent off to JTK's in-house renderer. I'm open to suggestions btw!

Exciting news everyone, JTK Hanami will be launching in May! I will have a more exact date soon, but I am aiming for early May.

I also updated the OP with layout mockups I did of Hanami on various boards, check those out to see some of the cool stuff you can do by combining the various kits :)
Several of these will be converted into actual 3d renders soon, so keep an eye out for those as well.

Also, if you have any suggestions, now is the time to give them before kitting is locked in.
*edit: i'm also open to suggestions for collabs & deskmat designs!

I'm glad you're running this with JTK, as I'm feeling a dangerous temptation to buy every single kit here...

No Japanese scripts on the ISO-UK caps 2." | 3.£ | `.¨ | '.@? Not sure why #.~ has |.\ on it? Or I'm being daft! Also any chance for a UK Vendor?

Thank you for adding F13 into the base kit, but can you please change it to the same color as the other mod keys in the Hanami base?
