we send the situation of the chrysanthemum exhibition of a flower center to you.
If it is called the flower of a chrysanthemum, it will be one of the flowers representing late autumn. The history of the flower of a chrysanthemum is also old and it is said to have been brought back to Japan by the official envoy to Tang who brought about the culture of Tang, technology, Buddhism, etc. from China (Tang) of those days around the 8th century of the Nara period that the flower of the chrysanthemum which has 3000 years or more of history by a China native has been introduced into Japan from the first. It is said that the flower of a chrysanthemum writes it as a "菊" in China, and this character is a Chinese character with the meaning referred to as bringing together the rice which was in disorder from the first in one place. It may be named from the place to which it seemed that white Kogiku's petal was gathering up rice completely. The flower of the chrysanthemum currently exhibited by the chrysanthemum exhibition is mainly divided roughly into two kinds. one -- a large flower -- it is a flower of a chrysanthemum and is referred to as AtuMono. The petal to which another is called KudaMono is thin, and, probably, a 1000-flower chrysanthemum which appears in fireworks etc. is expressing the chrysanthemum of KudaMono of this thin petal by fireworks. In addition, although Kogiku etc. has, it is used for the family crest etc. here as a design. If it is called the family crest of a chrysanthemum, it is very famous also as the Imperial Household's family crest. It seems that, as for the family crest of a chrysanthemum, this family crest came to be adopted also the Imperial Household once upon a time since [ which was being done among the Imperial Courts around from the Heian period ] it was used especially for the Gotoba Joko era by preference, although that was right. It is said that going into Meiji Era, and a chrysanthemum being formally determined as the Imperial Household's crest in Meiji 2, and using the flower of a chrysanthemum for other family crests henceforth before although anyone was able to use this family crest is forbidden law. It is said that the party of the chrysanthemum which floats and drinks a chrysanthemum in alcohol was held more from ancient times at the Chrysanthemum Festival on September 9. In China, it will be the reason which is adopted even as the Imperial Household's family crest if the opening wish to these perpetual youth and longevity which is not pulls as it was believed that the flower of this chrysanthemum had an effect of perpetual youth and longevity, and also serves as a Japanese national flower along with the cherry tree from ancient times. When saying so, Nojigiku Hyogo National Athletic Meet was held in 2006, but the Nomichi chrysanthemum which is a kind of a chrysanthemum is also a prefectural flower of Hyogo Prefecture. Although the best time to see of the flower of a chrysanthemum serves as the middle of November at the end time of October [ about ] -, bloom time changes also with a thing or kinds.
