Festivals & Events
There is an ancient tradition regarding the seven plants of spring (parsley, shepherd’s purse, Jersey cudweed, common chickweed, henbit, turnip, and daikon radish) that says they drive off disaster and brings wealth and prosperity, and they are typically eaten mixed into rice porridge, a dish called "nanakusagayu (rice porridge with the seven plants of spring)." At the Mukojima-Hyakkaen Gardens, the seven plants of spring are arranged in special baskets called "nanakusakago (baskets with the seven plants of spring inside)," and these are even presented to the Japanese Imperial family.
Pieces like this nanakusakago presented to the Imperial family, "kenjo nanakusakago," the "Jumbo nanakusakago" with a 50 centimeter diameter and 1 meter height, and "seven plants of spring planted in the soil" are on display, so please stop by and enjoy them for yourself.
