Tahara City "Densho Giku"
Chrysanthemum flowersDensho Giku, literally stanslated as "Electrically lit Chrysanthemum" Chrysanthemum flowers are in full bloom in November. As there are many varieties of different shape and color developed, people love to place the flowers on display at home and some people enjoy flower arrangement with them. There are also many Chrysanthemum Exhibits held at various places across Japan, including the displays of chrysanthemum dolls resembling some historical images of SAMURAIs and PRINCESSES, covered with different colors of chrysanthemum floweres.

Chrysanthemum flowersBut toward Japanese new year's festive season of late December, the crysanthemum demand increases though its season under normal condition is over. To make late blooming artificially for a month or so, crysanthemum growers light the glass-covered green house where they are grown all night to have the flowers feel it is still early to bloom.

This greenhouse lighting at night is showing a specutacular view of the night sceane of Tahara Town.
