The Kiku Daikon (chrysanthemum radish) is designated an intangible local cultural asset of Mito City in Japan.

It looks difficult to make such a beautiful flourish decoration with a sophisticated technique, but if inserting a bamboo skewer at the center of the locket, it is not as difficult as you would think.
We hope that you will try it for one of the New Year celebration.

To Japanese people, the “kiku” (chrysanthemum), is one of the most representative flowers, celebrated in festivals, shows and home displays. Like the cherry blossom, the chrysanthemum symbolizes the season, but more than that — the chrysanthemum became the Imperial Family Emblem.
