Sakura is a vte-based terminal emulator. Sakura project aims to provide a terminal emulator that only depends on GTK and VTE.

It use a notebook to allow multiple tabs in the same window.

It pretends to be a terminal emulator with few dependencies, so you don't need a full GNOME desktop installed to have a decent terminal emulator. As far as i know, the only terminal emulators based on VTE are gnome-terminal and a small sample program included in the vte sources.

Sakura differences from the last one is that it uses a notebook to provide several terminals in one windows and adds a contextual menu with some basic options. No more no less.

All the real and hard work is performed by libvte, a great library programmed by Behdad Esfahbod, Guilherme de S. Pastore and Nalin Dahyabhai.
