 Arranged by Hiroko Suzuki

Arranged by Hiroko Suzuki

Autumn is the season when various fruits and berries can be enjoyed.
Saikachi (honey locust)is a leguminous tree that grows some 15m high and cutting and transporting it down from the mountain is hence never easy a task.
The tree contains saponin that is suitable for making soap.
A bit of endeavor collecting rare materials brings you about a wider range of topics, which may play a good role at enjoyable occasions.
Components of arrangement: saikachi(honey locust), nanakamado(mountain ash), toad lily, fruit of hiougiayame or Arctic iris), vine of yam
