This week’s Bonsai at our Omotesando store is “Murasakishikibu”.
The origin of this Bonsai’s name is Murasaki Shikibu, a Japanese novelist, poet and lady-in-waiting at the Imperial court during the Heian period (794-1185).
She was very smart, and best known as the author of The Tale of Genji.
Therefore, the language of Murasakishikibu became “Intelligence” and “Elegance”.
Murasaki means violet in Japanese, so this Bonsai bears adorable violet-colored fruits in the autumn season, which will definitely please your eye.
At our Omotesando store, there is a Bonsai which you can feel the change of the season, and it is switched every week.
Please take your time to watch the beautiful Bonsai when you visit our Omotesando store.
