Mukojima-Hyakkaen Gardens: Seven Plants of Spring Display 向島百花園 春の七草の展示

3-18-3 Higashi-Mukojima, Sumida City, Tokyo
2019-12-25 - 2020-1-7

Over the New Year period, the Mukojima-Hyakkaen Gardens play host to an annual tradition that sees the seven plants of spring (parsley, shepherd's purse, Jersey cudweed, common chickweed, henbit, turnip, and daikon radish) arranged in special baskets called "nanakusa-kago."

It's said eating a mixture of the seven plants and rice porridge, a dish known as "nanakusa-gayu" will drive off disaster and brings wealth and prosperity.

(Nanakusa-kago exhibition period: January 4–7, 2020.)
