Daigo-ji temple which is located in Yamashina in Kyoto is famous for its sakura. Our company was given the sakura by Daigo-ji temple and was planted in a garden.
The sakura was a descendant of the sakura which Hideyoshi Toyotomi, a famous daimyo saw in a sakura viewing party. I hear that the party was much more gorgeous than we image. First hand, Hideyoshi Toyotomi made a plan to hold the party so as to please a lot of women who could not have go out of their castles. Each women was served three gorgeous kimono(japanese traditional cloth) and must have been very happy to get them.
On the other hand, it was not Hideyoshi Toyotomi but Shimazu-clan, Satsuma( Kagoshima prefecture now),Kyushu who was ordered to make numerous kimonos.
Hideyoshi Toyotomi must have been praised by all women but must have been held much grudge by Shimazu clan who had come to run short of money.
