Sakura and the Sakura from the Dream (さくらと夢の中のさくら, Sakura to Yume no Naka no Sakura) is the 40th episode of Cardcaptor Sakura. The Cardcaptors title for this episode is "Dream a Little Dream."


Sakura, Tomoyo, Syaoran, and Meiling decide to spend the day hanging around town. They go all over the city, including the arcade where they play a couple of games, and the movies where the girls pick to watch a romance film. The group then heads off to Tokyo Tower, and Sakura falls asleep the moment she steps through the doors, though she doesn't know. In the dream, they find it strange when no one else is there. 

Touya and Yukito are working at the concession stand, but they are supposed to be at a soccer game. The two of them also seem to know Kero. Things get worse when darkness surrounds the tower and Sakura ends up all alone. It turns out that Sakura is actually having a dream, shown to her by the Dream Card, which she accidentally stepped on when she entered Tokyo Tower. Sakura wakes up, and finds that Syaoran has used the Time Card, and Sakura then seals the Dream Card and the Card goes to Syaoran. Afterwards, Kero tells her that the dreams shown by the Dream Card are not ordinary dreams, but prophetic dreams of the future.
