Celebration chrysanthemum and Congratulations little girl
The shape. The color. They float in the calm space.
The flower language of the chrysanthemum is "Noble".
It is used as a crest of the Emperor of Japan.
The exhibition is opened at main Shinto shrines, others places of the whole country.
It is given glory to innumerably.
Because the cultivation process is too precise, I cannot imagine it.
The children have the Shinto priest purify.
It will become her valuable memory.
The chrysanthemums are exhibited carefully.
This splendid stage is the blessing for both chrysanthemums and children.
Please look at traditional culture of Japanese children if you have little time.

Excuse me. Please forgive that may worsen your feeling.
In the West, the chrysanthemum means "death".
This flower is not used at the time of visit in Japan either.
Maybe our habit want to recall the inside beauty of every phenomenon.
