Today's topic should be "KIRI"!
kirinomi? Are you kidding me (sounds like it?) Lol
This is not a fruit but a paulownia bud.
On October 22, 2019, the ceremony of the throne Reformation will be held in Japan.
In ancient China, when Seitenshi took the throne, it seems that the phoenix stops at the paulownia tree as a sign of good luck to the people.
So KIRI is referred to as "Phoenix perch".
There are actually KIRI in various places, such as the Imperial Coat of Arms, passports, and 500 yen coins!
KIRI is often used as a chiffon because it is less likely to break through moisture.
In a long time ago in Japan, KIRI was planted when a girl was born, and when she got married, she made a chiffon with the paulownia and used it as a wedding tool.
KIRI was possible because of its fast growth.
The paulownia fruit is covered with a hard shell like ginkgo nuts.#桐の蕾 #桐 #empresstree #princesstree #foxglovetree #paulownia #嫁入り道具 #桐タンス #シーボルト #flower #flowers #flowerlover #flowerlovers #flowerstagram #花が好きな人と繋がりたい
