General

Additional Information

It is said that the tree has the ability to flourish even in very poor quality soil,
with little nourishment. The Ginko tree has the ability to survive even during
the harshest circumstances. For these characteristics the tree was admired
by the Bushi, warrior class. The fruit of the tree is said to have medicinal
qualities and is used to improve the memory in old people. This Tsuba is
designed in the shape of three Ginko leaves with small droplets spread out.
