"10nen Sakura" (10年桜, Jūnen Zakura, "10-year Cherry Blossom", "10th Graduation Anniversary") is the 11th major single by the Japanese idol group AKB48, released on March 4, 2009.[1]

It's a school graduation song.

The single peaked at number 3 in the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart.[2]

10 years after the song was released, as well as the same day, the other center and now graduate, Maeda Atsuko , gave birth to her son. Some of the fans jokingly said that they had named Sakura/Zakura in commemoration of the anniversary.
