Did you know that the Imperial Seal of Japan is a Chrysanthemum? The seal features 16 petals with another set of 16 petal tips behind it. It can be seen on official documents, such as a passport, and represents longevity & rejuvenation.

Known as “Kiku” in Japanese, the Chrysanthemum is also the symbol for Autumn. The spacious Sankeien Garden in Yokohama holds a Chrysanthemum Flower Exhibition annually.

Now through November 24th, admire the flowers that are grown into unusual shapes by prescribed methods of care and pruning, similar to the Bonsai. In addition to the hundreds of Chrysanthemum blooms, beautiful Bonsai arrangements are also on display.
