Meokoshi

''Meokoshi'' is a technical term for ''hariganekake'' wiring work. It refers to the work of picking a bud at the tip of a branch with wires and shaping a tree, mainly of ''shohaku'' evergreen pines. This work is aimed at expressing a sense of dynamism and improving the appearance of a tree. It is also effective in improving ventilation and catching more sunlight. Sunlight to the root of a bud greatly improves the sprouting of a new bud.
