It is the first branch found from the base of a tree when one starts counting branches. The structure of the entire tree is determined by the condition of the lowest part of the trunk without branches. The location of the position from where branches come out and their relations with the thickness of a trunk and the balance between the height of the tree and the length of branches greatly affect the form of the tree as a whole. There is a case when ''migi ichinoeda'' (the branch on the right) is used by separating branches of a tree to left and right.
