Plant
Kongou-ji no Oume
The tree right in front of the main building on the ground of Kongou temple is Oume, which is designated a natural monument of Tokyo. There are three trunks which are separated from the root, but only two of them are alive. The height is 4.7m. When Masakado Taira introduced Buddhism in this area, he declared that his wish will be fulfilled depending on whether a shoot grows on a certain branch of Oume or not. Since it sprout, it is called Masakado Chikai no Ume (plum of Masakado's declaration). As this plum never ripens and stays blue until the fruits drop on the ground, it is called Oume (blue plum/unripe plum). This area's name olso originales from Oume. Plums are used mainly for food now, but they are the origin of the Hanami (bloom gazing)culture. They are originally from the area between Sichuan and Hubei in China. People cultivated them,viewed them as early spring's bloom, and used them as a topic of poems from a long time ago. It is said that the culture of plum viewing was imported to Japan with the plum cultivation.
Plums were often described in the poems of Manyoshu in Nara period and its decent colour and odor were admired. After the 10th century, which was the period when society changed from Ritsuryo to Shoen, the culture of viewing plum blossoms gradually changed to cherry blossom viewing.
