1974 Blossom Season of the Yamahaze.jpg

From the spring to summer, the Yamahaze shows incredible growth. It has the typical anacardiaceous smell, and by getting close to it you fear that you might be poisoned. But in autumn, it shows beautiful autumn leaves, and matured seeds that are used as a raw material in candles. The Yamahaze’s transformation is remarkable.
