Sakura's mother, Nadesiko, died when Sakura was very young. She married
Sakura's father, Fujitaka, at a very young age. Her family didn't approve of
the match and it left them estranged. Rather than take money from them,
Nadesiko worked as a model. This has left her immediate family with wonderful
photographs of her.
Even though she is no longer alive, Nadesiko still checks in on her family
in a spirt form. Her son, Touya, seems to be able to see her.
