Interesting pagoda made from flowers! I always associate Chrysanthemum with the emperor's throne in Japan.

I don't think I can recognize a chrysanthemum flower if I see one.

Kilala- thanks for dropping by, do you know me? hehehe yes right now I'm enjoying Northern Japan but I can't wait to find out what would be our next base LOL

Nomadic- actually I didn't know about chrysanthemum until I found out that Hirosaki has a chrysanthemum festival, I have to ask google. And dound out that "Chrysanthemum Throne" is the name given to the position of Japanese emperor. I'm not expert when it comes to flowers hehehe. Yes, the pagoda is nice

BertN- me too Bert, there are different kinds of chrysanthemum, like 30 species
